    They do love their zucchini! I'll have to try to float some slices. I bought some veggie clips that have magnets. Now I just attach a round of zucchini or a carrot to the clip, and guide it to the bottom with the magnet and anchor it there. Works great and now I'm not constantly fishing around with tongs to get the rinds out. Usually, there's not much left but still have to retrieve the anchor so the magnetic clip is great.

    I hear you on not wanting to part with the big guy. I had a common in my 30 and traded him when he got about 4 inches because I was already attached to him and knew the longer I kept him the harder it would be to let him go.

    Now I have a baby albino bristlenose. cutest little thing and grows very slowly - should only bet about 4 inches max.

    I'll have to look into veggie clips . . .

    We feed tubifex worms from Haakari that come in little freeze-dried cubes and they float. I rigged a plant sinker, making a small loop by bending it over on one end and stringing fishing line (about 18 in.) through it and tying it to a round tinker-toy piece on the other end. We can place up to two cubes in the plant sinker by simply bending the sinker over the cubes and squeezing it tight. When the fish are done eating, we simply 'fish' the sinker out with the fishing line. Easy-peasy ! The tinker toy more keeps the contraption from getting lost in our fish food basket; it's easier to locate than a plant sinker, but it also floats if the line falls into the water somehow, so we aren't elbowed-up in water to get the plant sinker back out.

    I'm trying to wrap my mind around this and can't figure out what you're using for a 'plant sinker'. I often wrap a tiny rubber band around a rock and attach the tubiflex worms to it. have attached dental floss to it once or twice to avoid having to fish it out but worry that the fish might cut their fins on the floss LOL

    Here's a link - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Blue-Ribbon-...-/200699219543

    They're great for holding down the smaller artificial plants.
    And floating fish food, as it turns out !

    Love 'em. Cheap and useful! They do wear out eventually, but last a long, long time.

    OMG...why do you have to make everything sooooo complicated?

    Stick a fork into a slice of zuchinni and let it sink to the bottom, just make sure the points of the tines are pointed downward into the gravel. Works for me. Easy, peasy.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    You already know why, Larry. It's what I do :o)

    Yeah but then there's a fork in my tank. I'll stick with the veggie clips
