When fish to recognize blanched veggies as food?

  • I wanted to do something different and give them something new. I blanched some zucchini squash and dropped it in the tank to see the reaction. Besides a few fishes pecking at it, it seems everyone else seem to ignore it. Just wondering if they don't recognize it as food or I didn't blanched the zucchini squash properly.

  • I would give it time, or try to avoid feeding for a day or two and then use that as food so that they will go after it and eat it. I’d also try to maybe coat them in flakes (if you have any) so that they can get used to the new food size and taste/smell (as many fish are extremely picky over this).
