ooh, we always have banana laying around -- I'll have to try it!

Even the algae wafers from hikari have alot of fillers in them however they do seem to enjoy them sometimes.

Everyone loves the zucchini, noone touches the spinach. Ill have to try the canned green beans.

I also make some of the repache (spelling) green, do a flat thinner wafer then freeze it in a zip lock. Break off a piece every once in a while. They seem to eat it ok.
Good to know! I probably won't buy them again, but I'll use them up to be thrifty! I'm contemplating attempting an algae-growing-on-rocks experiment in my window...I think the otos, shrimp, mystery snails, nerite snail, pest snails, and twig catfish are running out of food! If only they'd eat the GSA... *sigh*

It's not a mystery...snails are the BEST!
