Pleco eggs nightmare !!!!! update as I cant find old post.
Wow at last it works :-)
OK here's the update on the bulldog pleco fry. I have 2 left and they are both a good 2 cm in length. They both live in the rock pile and will only eat algae so I am having to change out rocks from my algae tank every 2 days. Hopefully I can get them to eat something else soon.1) 140 gallon with 70 gallon sump. 1 German Rams, 50 neons , 16 Schwarzi cory, 10 harlequin rasbora, 6 Hengals Rasbora, 2 Bulldog Plecs, 4x dwarf Gouramis, 12 golden barbs, 12 cherry barbs,8 Yellow Boesemani Rainbows and loads of assasin snails. Sump has central heating pump. water flows through a 4 layer foam and 1- 2kg of bio, also has a 18"x 18" algae scrubber that works well. fluval U2 to transfer to my QT when needed

Put a small piece of spinach in a wet paper towel and nuke it in the micro wave for 15 seconds to soften it. Most of my plecs go nuts for this, zuchini, romaine, spirulina flake etc. Put a little rock on it to hold it at the bottom.

Why would you give your fish which has been in a Microwave?
Humans shouldnt consume food which had been in a small radiated box nevermind fish.
Surely blanching it in hot water would be alot better and ORGANIC.100 gallon dirt planted tank

My BNs LOVE LOVE LOVE broccoli - they sleep/rest on the veggie clips! I use 2 clips (they each have their own stalk). They also really enjoy shelled peas. The forum also recommended watermelon - will try it when it's in season.75 gal - Smudge Spot Cories, Silvertip & Pristella Tetras, Scissortail & Red Tail Rasboras, Pearl Gourami, Black Kuhli Loaches, Wild Caught BNP, Mystery Snail
