or maybe fresh figs? I heard these grow all over tropical countries and often end up as food for a wide range of animals including fish when these fall in water.
thx for the suggestion I'm definitely try the yams since I have some
Although I don't know the reason, veggies (except for the leaf ones) should always be given raw. And removed if they are not eaten in a day or two since they will begin to rot and develop fungus.
Again I've no info on the fruit, but if used I would not peel it. And obviously raw.
To Stoke88's question, I don't know. I tried zucchini and cucumber, and nothing would touch it after 3 days. But I believe it takes them some time to get used to it; if they received it in the store, they may be more likely to know what it is. I think most fish will probably "try" anything they come across, not knowing if it is true food or not until they do. But that doesn't mean they will "like" it and eat it. I've noticed in feeding prepared fish foods that some fish will eat "A" and some fish won't even look at it, and all fish like "B" or only a few like "C", etc. Much like humans really.
