sweet potato for Angelicus loach?

Since the profile says these fish are fond of sweet potato, does anyone know how it should be served? I'm assuming a small piece raw?



Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

No, Sweet potato is very hard raw. I imagine you would boil it some to soften it up.

I don;t really know though, as I don't feed my fish anything other than NLS thera A

125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir

I feed yam (relative of sweet potato) raw. It is much less likely to foul the water. You will need to weight it down.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
