Bristlenose diet ?
I feed my bristlenose with algae wafers , lettuce and blanched carrots etc plus there is wood in the tank for them to munch on ,
What i want to know is - should veges supplement wafers in their diet or the other way around ?, in essence what should their diet consist mostly of ( alot of conflicting info out there lol), and yes i know variety is key in any fish's diet but i wish to know which food i should lean towards

here is the description directly from the video on youtube -
Hybrid Red tail catfish for sale !
$1000 tt ($900 if you pick it up before the end of the month)
Shovelnose redtail hybrid
8 months old
eats anything but loves shrimp
selling him because he's too small to be with my larger fish and too big to be with the smaller ones lol , i have him in a 500 gal that i want to use so i really want him gone soon , he's a cool fish though i'd keep him if i could
i also willing to trade for old aquariums , cuz i need some new growouts for fry (using half barrels right now lol)

Mine get cukes, summer squash or zucchini slices a few times a week. I just hack off a slice, stick a fork in it and toss it in the tank. I don't blanch mine. It lasts longer and doesn't get mushy. I do have algae pellets but it think it gets lost in the gravel. I also toss in a small amount of flakes now and then.
