yep the same for zucchinI I tend to buy my vegies very small so there are less seeds also.armadillo said:HI Bill
I'll repeat what I've said to you in my other thread as this is more likely the place other people will look for that information. Here's my advice based on personal experience and conversation with other Fishorians.
- It may take a few attempts before the fish get that it's food. My personal experience is 3 to 4 times I think if I remember well.
- It is important to remove any uneaten vegetables (and any other type of food for that matter) no later than, say 24h after you've put it in. I sometimes leave it longer but I don't advise that you do. The risk with leaving the food for too long is that it will go off, risking an increase in nitrates
- They like it when it's more tender (i.e. not fresh out of the fridge). Mine like it after it's been in the water for 12 hours or so. You could also boil it in very little water, so as to soften it
- Don't forget to rinse it thoroughly before you put it in the tank (insecticides and other such substances)
- For fish that don't find the cucumber, I tend to cut a huuuuuuuge slice (i.e. along the whole length of the cucumber) so that the fish finds it easier.
yea, the frozen ones are easier to peel after a quick microwave thaw.armadillo said:Am really the least practically-minded person in the northern hemisphere, so you'll have to bear with me here: so what happens once you're done pierced an opening in the pea? Do you just pull? Because if I was to attempt that, I'd just end up with all the flesh in a mess on my fingers. P.S. Am using tinned peas, not frozen. Maybe that's the difference?Bonochick said:Cute!
As a sidenote, I either just pierce a pea with my fingernail or with a paring knife...the skin comes right off then.
