How Much Lettuce?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a veggie clip and I was wondering how much lettuce you put in it. I have 3 goldfish.

:thud:huh:

Try about a 3"x4" chunk. You can either use the suction cup

on the side of the tank or tie a piece of string to the clip and

drop it to the bottom. Time limit should be 2-3 hours? If they

don't like the lettuce, try a leaf of spinach. :rolleyes:

Lettuce (darkleaf), spinach, cucumber, zucchini, oranges, apples,

grapes, bananas, watermelon, peas.

I found with the grapes and nanas to cut into bite size pieces. The

other stuff I've seen at vvvv put onto a plastic spear and

tossed into the tank for the goldies to pick on. The chunks were

2"x3" for most things. Or slices for the apples/oranges.

Just one leaf should do it. Remember to take out any leftover remains after 12 hours.

I put lettuce in today and they do not like it. So I put some spinach in. At first they just left it alone. I think it was because of the bad experience with:lol1 lettuce!!! So I came back about 3 hours later and all three of them were crowded around the veggie clip and were eating the spinach!!

Yeah!!! Success!!! :panana:panana:panana
