I recently acquired some Otocinclus' for my sorority/community tank, and have quickly run out of algae for them to eat. While I'm making my photo period longer, it will still take some time for more algae to start growing, so I've been supplementing theirs (and my cories') diet with green veggies: lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, green beans, etc. Whatever I can get a hold of.
I thought it was a nice way to feed my cories, too, since I figured my bettas would hardly be interested in green veggies!
But... I was watching my new cellophane female picking off pieces of the cucumber slice that I added the other day. And she is constantly picking at it, and eating the fleshy part of the cucumber. She is starting to get fat, too.
Should I be concerned about her odd eating preferences? I know peas are bad for bettas, but are cucumbers bad too? >_<
