Corydoras Eating Zucchinni?


I have zucchini in my tank for the plecos to eat. It has also proven to be a favorite of one of my corys, who at this moment has been happily muching on zucchini for 15 minutes.

Are they supposed to do that? My understanding was that they mainly ate worms. He's welcome to as much zucchini as he wants, it just seems odd.

Mine eat pretty much anything. They are catfish after all.

Agreed with above. If its edible they'll eat it.

I have a bunch of Bronze cories in my 75 planted tank and I regularly feed zucchini to the BN plecos. I've never seen any of my cories feeding on it.

I've never seen my peppers eat the zucchini that I feed the BNs, but they will poke at any algae wafer remnants.

The zucchini loving cory is a Metae. None of the others touch the zucchini, only the one guy. They all are crazy about algae wafers, though.
