Here ya go. The guppies went nuts, the threadfins were a little more picky. The rice and celestials held their own. You can even see the fry swimming around getting their share. The cory's simply waited for the food to settle on the bottom.

You guys may be onto something with this "garlic" stuff...last night I put a good sized broccoli floret in a small bowl of water and sprinkled some garlic powder on it...let it sit an hour or two...then put it in the tank...my fish went NUTS over it, like I've never seen them do before with veggies...even the Colombian tetras were picking at it, and I've NEVER seen them go after veggies!
Good to know...

all I know is garlic releases a strong odor in water, it is also very useful on fish bait for when you are out fishing. Stinky baits work well for many fish like bass and catfish. Another good catfish bait is actually sharp cheddar - just get a block and cut it into cubes and go to town.Current tanks:

I did split a small wafer in half and dropped it in during a feeding to see what happened....it was like a basketball game for quite a while, with a gang chasing whoever had it in their mouth at the moment. Quite entertaining, though I'm dubious as to whether the corys got any or not. Will try the Spectrum out for sure -- and garlic on the veggies!!Attitude is everything.

10 long-finned zebra danios, 11 neon tetras, 6 platys, 6 julli corys, cherry shrimp and 6 nerite snails.

I tried soaking the blood worms the other day. Added in some freeze dried brine shrimp as well. The fish went nuts for this nasty soup.
