Vegetables that sink?
Hey guys just a quick one,
I need to know any vegetables that sink to feed my apple snail, he can't handle cucumber because it floats and it's a real pain to pin down infront of him.
I've already tried raisons (which he seems to love) but they my be too sugary for the poor guy.
Help :)

I think canned green beans do just get the unsalted ones

Thanks! Haven't got any right now but will look into it.
Was thinking of raw veggies

hmmm not sure of raw veggies, I think you have to blanch them first

I use a veggie clip. They're only a couple bucks. Or you can stick the cucumber on the end of a fork and put that in the tank.

Thanks jeaninel, never thought of that

If you blanch that slice of cucumber it will sink

I stick the zucchini on the end of a plastic fork then just stick the end of the fork in the sand gravel.
