and a nice big chunk of cucumber (roughly 2 inches long) for 6 hours and here is the outcome . . .

No but pics like this always make me a bit envious. I wish I had the space for one of those.

Looks just like what I pulled out of my bristlenoses tank. Now I will throw this one in for the shrimp to finish off and the BN get a new one.

Its funny cause when I put courgette (zuchinni) in the tank my pleco eats all the skin first then works his way round until theres nothing left unless I remove it first.

And my bristlenose don't eat the skin at all. Zucchini comes out looking the same as the cukes. My shrimp devour the entire thing. I've had about 100 shrimp and my otto's sitting on a cucumber slice since yesterday and they're still going after it.

I think after that statement a picture should be supplied :hmm3grin2orange:

Nice! Almost a perfect circle! Beautiful L022 thumbs2:

My Bristlenoses refuse to eat skin too... Wish they would.

That looks really cool. My pleco won't touch cucumber either....zuchini is its friend.

My brisltleys also will not touch cucumber - love zucchini - the tribe in the 100 gallon eat from the inside out and leave the skin - the tribe in my 50 gallon eat the skin first then the flesh - go figure!!
