    Default Asparagus for plecos??

    0 Not allowed!
    Got some asparagus spears in the fridge, would my plecos appreciate one as a treat? I know asparagus has an unusual chemical in it (makes you pee smell funny) and I wasn't sure if this would be harmful to the tank?

    Plecos feasting would be:
    Common plec
    Gibby plec (number and scientific name is in my profile)

    Wanted some opinions before I give it a bash, thanks
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    I've fed it to BN pleco's before, no problems, but normally I use canned green beans. If your pleco's eat fresh or canned veggies they should go for the asparagus.

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.

    Mine get cukes and zucchini slices. Raw. I like to drop in something I can easily remove.

    I love fresh asparagus!

    Cukes?? British translation please mines love zuccinni and cucumber, I fancy trying cabage for them. I always just stick a chunk onto a fork, with some thread on the fork so I can easily pull it out without getting wet.
