How do you get your fish to eat boiled/blanched vegetables?
So I had read several places that fish love veggies. I have been feeding my fish strictly pellets and flakes since I started the tank (10g) about six months ago. I added a large amount of fish today, 6 zebra danios. So as a treat to all my buddies, I gave them a slice of boiled squash/zucchini about an inch thick. I plopped it right in the middle of the tank, but nobody had any interest. I stuck a pellet or two in it, and after 10 minutes only my glass tetra had started poking around it. I ended up taking it out and breaking it up (it immediately became stringy and floated around the tank). I let them eat it out of my hand for about a minute, ten removed itfrom the tank. There was a ton of vegetable particle floating around. My zebras who hang up top are still going nuts eating, and this is a half hour later.
How do you get your fish to readily eat veggies? Do you slice em small and feed them like pellets, or do you just let them come to the slice in the tank? It's my first time feeding something outsidse of pet store food. Thanks! Posted via Mobile Device
