    I have 6 cories and a bumblebee catfish (Asian). How much zucchini should I be feeding them? Or do they not eat veggies at all? They currently get shrimp pellets and they normally eat the veggie rounds I drop for my snails. There's a bunch of pest snails, along with 3 mystery snails and a nerite that I want to start feeding zucchini to, but that's easy to figure out the amount to feed. I just wanted to know if I drop in a second slice for my catfish, how much should they get?

    they dont really need zucchini. you can feed them blanched peas and algae wafers and they will be fine. but if you want to feed them zuuchini then give then a boiled slice of it. feed it twice a week

    Corys don't need veg, they have no teeth for rasping & I believe bumblee catfish don't need veg either as they're more carnivorous.

    Okay, so if I drop some in for my snails I won't have to add extra for the cories? That's a relief. I don't want to burn through the zucchini.
