Vegetables

So, I have recently just put in some broccoli stems (blanched, washed, peeled etc.) none of my fish are really going for it, should I just try something else? Or should I just give it time?

Hello Pan...

I feed minced garlic from Spice World. Very nutritional herb. Has a natural antibiotic. My Livebearers and Corydoras really go for it.

Broccoli isn't normally something most fish will go after. Blanched zucchini or cucumbers are usually better bets, although I've heard of people feeding squash and bananas too.

My fish love peas. I pinch the skin off before putting in the tank.

+1 peas! My fish love 'em. My male ram gets very territorial over his pea lol. I had an algea eater that loved broccoli and zucchini. Keep in mind they're like babies and you have to try a few times before they decide to like it. They may not recognize it as food yet.

Everyone in my tank seems to like blanched zucchini. The tetras like to nibble on it, and when I had my BN plecos, they absolutely went to town.
