Essjay, is it the inside of a pea or the skin that is stuck ? I only ask because I have read that you should remove the skins before feeding. Platies also like the crust removed from the bread when you serve them sandwiches.

Rex, with Platies, you add water and stand back.

Haha!! Love the sandwich comment.. lol Can't have curly tails now can we?

I definitely skinned the peas, but didn't cook them enough.. Had to bite the bullet and catch her today as it was still stuck.. I "very" gently squeezed the pea out, my god, I have nooo idea how she hoovered almost 1/2 a pea!! Poor little bugger is not liking me very much at the moment and I'll keep a very close eye on her for a while.. Her mouth is still open, but after a few days of being in the same position, that's to be expected I suppose..

Lesson learned the hard way.. No "Al dente" peas for platies!!!
