    I would like to know if I can feed my Cory cats some cucumber until I go to my lfs. Will they eat it? If so how should it be prepared?

    Corys shoukd eat most veggies you give them. Cut a peice about 3/4-1" thick and put a fork in it. They should enjoy it. Remove after a few hrs
    I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
    gotta love them bunnies!

    Yes, the fork is used a weight to hold it down. If you have zucchini try it instead of cucumber, it has more nutritional content to it.

    How long will it take for them to find it?

    Corydoras cats are not really known to forage for vegetation. They are designed to search out and eat small crustaceans etc from the stream bed or river bottom. While they may taste it and even eat some this is not really what they like to eat. Many plecos on the other hand are designed to eat veggies, there are a few that also eat the crustaceans too, you would look at the mouth design on the pleco to tell what it likes to eat. I look on planetcatfish to learn about cats specifically.
