    Default Feeding Frenzy!

    I have a 55 gal. fish tank that has quite a few loaches lurking about. One thing that lures them out are some nice chunks of blanched zucchini! The first pic didn't have the flash on, but I turned it on to get a clear shot of them.

    They just go insane over their veggies:







    I didn't realize the glass had water stains until after I took the pics! Sorry!

    They look really happy! Guess this is a major good meal!

    I miss my aquariums!
    It looks like you have live plants rather than plastic, very nice!

    I agree. Plastic plants suck all the "chi" out of aquariums. Plastic plants also majorly suck the chi out of a room and are feng shui evil.

    Well, there are some live plants in the tank...and two fake ones that are really tall. They don't look bad with moss growing on them. The loaches like to perch in them near the surface. I could never get any plants to grow tall enough in my tank to do that.

    The loaches are very funny and getting quite plump like little sausages! It's fun to watch them go crazy over their food.
