    Oh yeah, BNPs can get spooked easily, I've had mine for months, but if I approach the tank quickly and she is out in the open, she scurries quickly away...I have to kind of sneak up on her to get a good close look when she's out, lol....normally she is under the arches of my DW and doesn't scare as easily from there

    You really need to get them some fresh veggies when you can, they get over their shyness quickly when there's goodies to eat, lol....yellow (summer) squash is the easiest to start with, IMO...it is tender enough to feed raw, without blanching or microwaving....you can do something as simple as cutting one up into disks, and skewering them through the side peel with a (clean) bent wire coat hanger

    Mrs. Slap bought a pair of extendable open-fire roasting forks that are used for roasting weinies/marshmallos/etc that work great, that's what I use: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rome-Chrome-...-/370967938167

    well had to go out today to get antifreeze for father in laws truck which I am driving so I can run errands and check on him when he gets home. so went to Wally World man what a madhouse. some gal too busy texting ran her cart into the back of some guys heel and he went down in pain needless to say he got back up and tore into her.

    so while i got the antifreeze I got a new jar of minced garlic since I was out and a can of french cut green beans and cucumbers were on sale for 75 cents so picked one of them up too. got home opened the beans and put a nice wad of garlic in there and plopped the lid on shook it up and put in fridge til lights out time tonight and I will drop one or two in there for the babies. they don't seem to find the algae wafers yet so either they got plenty to munch on on the wood rocks and things or too small to sniff them out lol. i need to get a vac to get the pieces out though.

    You should use frozen green beans instead of canned, as the canned green beans usually have added sodium, which is definitely not good for freshwater fish.

    dont think that much will hurt ive seen lot of pleco threads where ppl use the canned french cut green beans besides most plecos can do fine in brackish water so that little salt wont hurt them. plus this del monte brand is what the previous owner fed these guys

    I don't see the need to blanch zucchini. I use it raw and both the adults and babies go at it voraciously, even gnawing the rind. I cut a 3-4" chunk and halve it the long way (goes in two tanks). Stick the handle of a spoon through it just inside the rind and it sinks. In one tank I can remove the spoon using aquarium tweezers. The other tank is deeper but my spoon handle sort of flares out. So I am able to tie a string around this and the zucchini hangs instead of resting on the tank bottom. Easy retrieval with the string.

    What is the benefit of the garlic? I haven't heard of using this before.
