hello all



been having a problem getting feed down to tank bottom, it is getting snapped up by everything else before it gets down, so i had a think as to what to do, came up with an idea to use a turkey baster fill it with food point it at tank bottom hey presto food straight down to bottom feeders, give it a try see what you think. :)


cheers...........dekker :)

Aye, they're an excellent idea! I have one myself just for the purpose :) I find them very useful for feeding the pleco and loach as the Terror has a tendency to eat the cubes whole! I also use a smaller pipette to feed my marine corals and crabs as well as some of the freshwater fry ;) Also why not try some sinking pellet combined with floating foods to cover all the fish?
