    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.

    Same here. My giant danios practically launch themselves out of the water in an attempt to get every scrap.

    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.

I do break the wafer in half though so part can go on one side and part on the other. a lot of times the fish will peck at one and a panda and gourami will share another. my plecos must wait until i go to bed. lol
    I'm going to look into the Spectrum. As an update, I have found that when I crush the flakes fine (as Slap mentioned) and put it in the tank near the filter flow then it gets dispersed really well, and quite a bit of it ends up on the sand....the corys have already figured out when feeding time is and they are hoovering all over the place. So I think they are getting some.

    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.

    40 gallon FW tank: Black sand substrate, lots of live plants,
    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.

    LOL....a nasty soup to you, perhaps, but I bet your fish would disagree
