Just checked out the screwcumber link. Oooooh, very clever!Gunnie said:Sometimes your fish are particular and don't like things other fish like. The zucchini is usually a big hit with plecos. I don't nuke or blanch my veggies. I weigh them down with a screwcumber. You can also just stick a spoon or fork in them to weigh them down. My plecos love zucchini, yellow squash, sweet potatoes, & carrots.
never thought about it before. i only have one artificial decor in my tank and he doesnt go near it. i guess the way the rasp on things means maybe it would.....but surely the manufacturers would only use safe paint? so nope, i really have no idea....sorryNoobie said:I think I read somewhere that the paint, or whatever they use to decorate artificial, storebought decorations may be a potential hazard to plecos...fact or fiction?
