    There's no cucumber in there. It's brocoli and carrot (and hasn't been in 24hrs yet).

    ...and saying that - no one is interested in the carrot. They are picking at the brocoli ends.

    Ok, so I removed the brocoli...and jeez...no less than 100 baby assassin snails dropped off it. I was shaking it around in the water and they just kept coming. It sucks they take so long to mature or I'd be selling them by now. They're about the size of each of these letters in this post.

    My assassins do not touch any veggies. How strange. It gets covered with trumpet snails but no assassins eat it for me. Sorry about the carrot-cuke mixup. Looked like a cuke to me. I will be happy when summer finally gets here and cukes don't cost so much.

    Yeah it's weird, I might do it again and take photos of the amount that came off it.

    Lol...I don't forgive people easily who mistake carrot for cucumber, but for you I'll make an exception

    Like some other species profiles it's incomplete and incorrect in places.
    So, final remark:
    http://www.readcube.com/articles/10....360-009-0381-1 and the quick overview hiere: http://www.biomedcentral.com/content...-12-124-s1.pdf to name a few. I just checked some gut analysis of Ancistrus and there's little if any wood in most wild ancistrus. Also the beginners information on planetcat doesn't even list wood.

    Since wood doesn't hurt ancistrus and provides good shelter I'm going to leave it at this.

    Good luck
    Be sure the fork tines point down, toward the substrate. That way they won't cause injury if they are exposed as the veggie is eaten. I use a fork for watermelon and have 2 veggie clips on the front glass for the broccoli (they each need their own stalk).

    Valid point there Laura. These fish are not keen on sharing such delicacies.

    I've already made that point but it was missed:

    The fork is an excellent idea - especially if you make sure it goes in the tank prongs down (in case of clumsy fish hurting themselves)
    ...and I didn't do it myself when I used it! I knew my fish wouldn't be that bothered though - I would if I had a plec.

    That is true and you did. But I was referring to laura needing to feed broccoli in separate portions
