Talking Do you want your fish to love you?

If you do, feed them cooked yams.

I was making my holiday orange glazed yams recipe this morning for another Christmas celebration tonight and had a couple scrap pieces of yam left over. I figured I would try and see if anyone would want them in my community tank.

I have never seen everyone so excited about food. The Corydoras were more excited about the yams then they get over their shrimp pellets! Even the Rasboras are in on the action.

Anyway, that is all, just figured I would share. I know yams are not really an item people (at least not us) normally have around but wow, apparently they are a very special treat for the creatures!

Have a great day!

Next time they're in the house, I'm gonna have to try that! How were they prepared, just boiled, or?

I just boiled them whole and then skinned and sliced them.
