How do I go about feeding them Cucumber? Do I just drop it in and wait for it to be eaten, or do I take it out after a while (of course I know it'll be just a slice, which I wouldn't mind sharing the rest of the full cucumber with myself).
Can the shrimp also have some cucumber?
I should probably ask about baby ghost shrimp, too. Is there any chance that any from a batch would survive in the tank (after I unplug the filter, of course)? I'm only wondering because there's one pregnant ghost shrimp, with it's belly moving a lot.
Don't turn off the filter. Just take the intake tube and put pantyhose around it, low flow if it's adjustable :)
I'd take out the cucumber within a few hours if they don't eat it all. Shrimp will probably enjoy it too, a betta may bite it but will probably not eat it.
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
I just had to keep trying to get a good picture of Finneon. I got two more pictures, one which I'm proud of because it shows most of his color (the only camera I have is my phone's, which isn't too great).
Thank you. When I saw it at the pet store I just felt like I had to bring it home, especially after a little kid showed interest in it (I was worried he may not have taken care of it too well). After a while it just became more colorful. It actually has black dots all over its tail, which is impossible to see in the pictures.
