Cucumber seeds?

I fed my fishes a slice of cucumber. Now there are white cucumber seeds all over.

Cucumber seeds aren't harmful right?

On a side note, watching the shrimp lug a cucumber seed is quite the spectacle.

Give the shrimp more time. Sounds like they are interested.

I hate it when that happens. Now I just gut the slices, taking out the seeds. The fish still enjoy what's left.

HAHAHAHA.

I will see how far they have progressed tomorrow morning.

Polka-dot loaches and pearl gouramies also seem to take a liking to cucumber seeds. They try to eat it but it's too big for them to eat whole. But they're darn persistent so we'll see progress tomorrow.
