Halloween Noms for Fishies!


So I've been waiting eagerly for Halloween to have an excuse to try pumpkin out on my Leopard Sailfin Pleco. I used scraps from pumpkin carving last night, boiled a piece for 1 min in microwave in a cup of water, cool it, then rubber banded it to a rock and plopped it in the tank. My pleco ate over half of the large piece in under 2 hours O.o Yep he likes pumpkin.
He broke it off the feeding stone I use form noming so vigorously poor guy keeps looking all over the stone for it now (its floated around about a foot away in the tank but on the gravel where he can find it.. yep he found it while I was typing that last part lol).

Anyone else give their fishies special food treats for the holidays (Halloween or other celebrated days)? Not necisarrily food specify for humans for the day, but just some extra yummies for the pets (maybe a rare live food snack)?

Also Happy Halloween, All Hallows Eve, Samhain, or Dia De Los Muerto (day early)!

Fortunately I'm not a 3 year old or an incompetent older person that would give candy to a pet. But I remember seeing something online about a giant goruami that was fed only KitKats by its owner until a zoo/aquarium took it (don't know if that's true or all bs but I'm sure someone, somewhere has done stupid candy diets)
