Awesome and it just sinks right down? I saw some videos of people putting it in ice cube trays for perfect portions. My 190 is pretty big. The sunshine and 191 are as small as my bristlenoses.
it doesn't sink like a rock, but it does sink, I put it right on the sand where they like to hang out, but you can put it on decorations and other stuff too

My bristlenose pleco loves eating peas.
Do the peas sink? I imagine they’d float. I have a lot of flow, I can already see peas blowing around all over the tank lol.

Oh that’s cool can’t wait to try that.

They float for like 10-15 seconds then go right to the bottom to get gobbled up :)

I feed veggies always in the same location. So now when my hand goes in the tank my biggest L191 goes and waits patiently in that spot.

My plecos wont touch cucumber but zuchini is so far a big hit. There are some picky plecos who wait until all the peel is eaten off of it and there are some (mainly my l27) who only want to eat the peel. Most of my plecos diet is african cichlid pellets. I buy them in bulk from YourFishStuff and the plecos love it. The only issue is the open water fish love it too!

My L14 only likes the peel as well.

I think I have some peas in my freezer. I’ll try those!

Yeah my sunshine loves Hikari food sticks and massivore delite. It waits until the pellets have sunken though.

I've got a big mix of herbivores, omnivores and carnivores. I usually feed Hikari algae wafers and massivore pellets.

Usually once a week I'll make them some kabobs to mix things up.

For the carnivores I do shrimp and fish fillet. They're usually the only ones to go for that but occasionally my Royals will eat some shrimp. Fortunately I've never had an issue.

When feeding veggies I get the best response from watermelon (they'll eat the rind too), sweet potato, red/green/orange peppers and various squash.

They all LOVE seedless cucumber or zucchini - that's the favorite.
