Fish loving cucumber

This is an interesting topic for myself. I do feed my fishes zuc but for example in my 40 which has about 12 otto - only 2 of them will eat it. In my 29 where I have some L204 and red tail otto (which are described as meat eaters on planetcatfish); both will gobble it down but the tetra (cardinal) and apisto (hongsloi) won't touch it. Also in the 29 they will start with the skin and work in but in the 40 they won't touch the skin. In another 29 where i have a super red only she will eat it but she won't touch the skin - she carves out the meat perfectly leaving just the skin in perfect untouch condition the next morning. In the 120 the bn, L204 and clown loaches will gobble it down (with the clown loaches being very big eaters) but the otto and anglefishes as well as the kribs (which some claim love plant matter) won't touch it (I have 5 females in the 120 - they were left over frys after i took the the other adults and frys to the petshop - they didn't want to be caught when i was going to the store and later i didn't have the heart to flush them - thankfully i caught all the males).
--
So as far as i can tell only a few otto, all red fin otto (which are suppose to prefer meat), pleco (L204,bn) and clown loaches will eat the stuff but no one else. Well when the clowns were gobbling the stuff down the angles poked at it but decided the clowns were crazy and moved on.

None of your tanks have top have you had issues with fishes jumping out? I removed the top from the 40B last year and so far 1 kubotai, 1 otto (very strange) and 1 blue eye forktail rainbow jumped out. I've removed the remaining forktail (never liked them) and gave the kubotai a long lecture. No clue why the otto jumped.

I keep mainly Corys and have only one ever jump out. The "hillstream" left under has a lower waterlevel so leopard danios stay in (hopefully)

I have a question on the lemons; someone told me that they require something native to their habitat to breed lemon else the colour changes if you breed them; I forgot what they said they require from the native habitat other than noting it was difficult to reproduce in captivity; is this true ?

I don't have my Lemons anymore, but Lemons are a Xanthic (like albinisme) variaty of BN's. To me that's a recessive gen (just like albinism) so you need two Lemons or brown parents with the recessive gen to get Lemon fry.

I think your mixing this up with Gold tetras.
Those need a harmless "parasite" to get the gold color. Tankbred fish lack this parasite and are silverish instead of gold.
