I didn't think they'd be interested, but I put a leaf in to feed the plecos and the Julies went straight for it. They were more than curious, they were tearing into it. I don't know if they were actually eating it -- it was raw so it was probably a little tough. I've also seen them nibbling at other veggies that I put in for the plecos.

Are those the transcriptus fry you were telling us about? They look incredible.
I don't think I'll feed mine lettuce quite yet but it is interesting to know they went for it. Maybe it was just something new in the tank.

That's really cool Betty, I've never tried lettuce in the tank... or any other veggies for that matter. Seen many people do it over the years tho. The Julie's look great btw Wink

Emil, they're still small, probably around an inch or so, I'd say. If I had any confidence in shipping, you could have them!

Rockfish, sorry to hear that! I've had a couple of long power outages, but luckily didn't lose any fish as a result.

Thanks for the compliments. Here is what the lettuce looked like last night. The plecos took care of most of it, but the Julies were still picking at the scraps. Smile

That sucks. Sorry to hear you lost some fish. Mind if I ask why? Was it the lack of a filter or the lack of heat or something else?

Thank you. I believe it was the cold, it went down to 55 degrees. The tanks were lightly stocked and it would not have been such a quick die off if it was an toxicity issue that usually needs to build up.

I really hate to hear when someone losses fish. My brother lost his after Hurricane Katrina even though he had a generator to run his pumps. He had to go back to work before he got power back and during the day the water would get hot. They made it for about 2 weeks but finally died.

Betty that is weird the Julies eat any vegetable. My Comps or shellies don't even nibble to move it out of their way no matter what vegetable I have tried.
