    Great idea Matt! Your fish look wonderfully healthy
    When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the fire department usually use water.

      Thanks Al, I can't take credit though, I found it floating around somewhere on the vast web. I will take credit for the healthy comment though.

              How'd it go? Did your bottom dwellers say they never had it so good?

                  I put one in each of the big tanks yesterday morning. The cories in the 150 had a field day digging it out. In the 75, I barely had my hand out of the tank and the blood parrots dug it out. It looked like they were playing soccer with it so I went to grab my phone to film it. By the time I got back to the tank, they were swallowing the last of it. I was afraid they were going to get sick because it was frozen, but apparently they didn't care.

                    Haha!! I'm glad your cories got a kick out of it

                    Leave it to a BP to immediately dig up anything you try to plant/bury! lol! I have just tossed they frozen cube in before more than once and let them pick at it and never had an issue.

                      I always thawed the frozen cubes out is a bit of tank water. Don't think I'll bother anymore.

                        What a cool idea Matt! My cories LOVE beefheart. As do my BPs and I usually just put it in frozen too and let them eat if from my hand. Get them distracted and then make sure some gets down to the bottom feeders.
                        Don't tell me the sky is the limit, when there are foot prints on the moon!! (anon)

                          I used to as well Lori, one day I just decided to toss it in instead of waiting around for it to thaw and turkey bastering it in, the rest is history.

                          Try it out girl!! It works just as well with any frozen cube too. Now you don't have to distract anyone, you can just feed and enjoy watching them trying to get at it. Either that or just watch the BP's tear it out of the ground like Lori! loL!

                            I tried it but not successful. My non bottom dweller fish were picking at it before my bottom dweller fish.

                              Weird, the bottom dwellers have much better equipment for finding that kind of stuff, I've found if too much gets uncovered the rest of the fish will just frenzy and get it. If it goes to plan, there is very little that can be seen and the rest of them just wait for the cories to dig up more, like in the video.
