Right now my Africans are divided up between 3 qt tanks for at least another couple days.. maybe even a week. Well 3/20g and having to establish whos the big dog of each tank has caused some aggression. Fin nipping chasing..general bullying but nothing worse *fingers crossed*. But I discoverd a way to satisfy their need to murder something lol. Zucchini! Not blanched or softened. I have always given it to them every couple days any way but now I clip it in 2 different areas of each tank and don't soften it and they stoped fighting! Why do people say to blanch it anyway? My other tanks eat it just fine when its fresh. I don't know if this trick will translate the same when they go back into the big tank but I don't see why not. They actually attack the zucchini like it really pissed them off and they are making sure it dies a painfull death ALL DAY long haha. I honestly don't know whos the tank boss anymore in any of the QT tanks.. they just "boss" the veggies.
Tell me if I'm doing something wrong though. Is it OK for them to eat zucchini everyday(yes they get their other foods ). All mbuna's except my sunshine peacock and the Nimbochromis fuscotaeniatus who doesn't really bother the zucchini or anyone else.
