    I usually do blanched cucumber or zuchini in my tank... but recently I've found that my pleco isn't interested in it at all anymore.

    Do you guys have better luck with raw veggies on a fork?


    Also, does anyone else have some crazy glitch going on with PMs? Lol I have 65534 unread messages according to the top corner!

    Actually both work for my guys

    I need to lightly blanch the veggies in order to get them to start eating it tho. After that, they seam to eat the fresh veggies a little faster than blanched
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Hmm.. maybe I'll try raw tonight. He used to demolish a slice of blanched cucumber when I would drop it in there, but now he just doesn't touch it.

    You could also try cutting a few slits in the veggies and putting some algae waffers inside. I have found that also helps to get them to eat their veggies

    I like the idea of hiding the algae wafers in the veggies. May also want to try other veggies, leafy greens, beans, carrots, etc...

    I go completely raw. I also leave it in until the remains break free of the rock I banded them to and go floating around. Different critters are interested in it at different stages of freshness. Plecos will go after fresh raw zucchini. Otos, platies, and gouramis will pick at something that's been in there a bit. Shrimp don't start until a bit after that.

    Ive found fresh and raw works, not only do my bristlenoses attack with gusto, most of the other fish have the odd nibble as well
