Grazers will normally eat the veggies first. The bits and pieces the float around may get eaten by the other fish. Fish will also eventually learn that learn that new things in the tank will mean food. Some fish may not even like the taste and just ignore it. Since I occassionally hand feed my feed, anytime I stick my hand in the tank, they start pecking at it. Even if my hand has nothing or if I'm doing a gravel vac, my fish will pec at my fingers. I'm just glad they have no teeth. :D

Anyone have any experience with this or something similar:
HATCH'N FEEDER Continuous Brine Schrimp Hatching Feeder

Supposed to keep "pumping" out fresh hatched brine shrimp without a lot of fuss... Good for cichlid fry? Or would I be better off with something like Hikari First Bites prepared food for the fry?

I normally have cucumber or zucchini or peas in the tank, but am thinking of "baby food" for my little fry? Would this fall under the original title of "too much"?
