    Last night I basically dropped a Hikari Sinking wafer on him, and after scooting out of the way, he went over to it and chomped down! Then, he attached himself to the front glass so I could see his belly! So cooperative. He's looking nice and plump. Guess I'll just need to keep up the food bombing

    Thanks for the recommendations on the veggies, I'll keep trying the cuke.

    Mine really love to chow down on blanched romaine lettuce, boiled until its good and slimey like, the softer the better.

    They used to ignore zucchini but for some reason, its now readily devoured, more so than the lettuce. I feed the zucchini unblanched, sliced into quarters. It usually disappears overnight, skin and all.

    I have 2 BNs. They also eat plain old fish food flakes and frozen bloodworms. I feed an occasional algae wafer but those are fed sparingly because all the other fish tend to get to those before the BN do.

    If they get their greens via fresh veg that's fine. Protein rich stuff should never be the mainstay of their diet, leads to deficiencies and digestive troubles.

    Mine tend to get protein cravings if the air pressure drops suddenly

    sorry I didn't see this thread sooner. My BNP love zucchini and watermelon. He also gloms on to spinach. Just presenting it to him and he will eventually find it. If you do know where one of his fav hiding spots is and can position a piece close by, he may find it faster.

    Someone here suggested wedging some wafers into a slice of zucchini. He'll come for the wafers and end up eating the veggies.
