Tried Zucchini just now

I cut a little strip and blanched it for a short time in boiling water. Cooled it down and tied with string and dropped it into the tank.

All three clown loaches were immediately over it, trying to suck or bite the zucchini.

The other cory-cats were on it as well along with an algae eater.

I couldn't really tell if these guys really ate bits of the zucchini or they only savor the juice/slime of the zucchini...

Maybe somebody with bigger clown loach group can explain this?

Ooh and these guys were still hungry after the zucchini, for supper I gave them a treat of dried blood worm and they ate like they hadn't had a meal for a week!
