I've got some BNP's in a few tanks and they LOVE the Cholla, if it's big enough they will chill inside and come out. I've seen no adverse effects and they are all happy campers

You must have some picky picky BNP...mine will attack anything...Wafers, shrimp food (actually any kind of shrimp food), veggies, they are awesome.....

My fav is to feed them a zuch that's been blanched....in my big tank I have 6 or 7 and they all come over and happily eat and play and chase each other..I love these fish

+ they are very shrimp friendly

On a side note, I decided to throw two chunks of zuch raw into the tank last night and while they are eating it, they are eating it at nowhere near the rate that they usually eat the blanched.
