Feeding BBS every night to the fishroom was starting to get laborious using a pipette. The first thing I did to cut time was to stopping rinsing BBS after hatching and I've seen no difference in my tanks, never going back to rinsing haha. I wanted something that was one handed operation and didn't drip on the floor. I could use a small pitcher but I wanted more control and be able to feed quicker than pouring. I settled on trying these no-drip, bottom dispensing, squeeze bottles. I think these are what Subway uses for their dressing as well. I've been using them for a couple weeks now. I'm pretty happy with the performance. I fill the bottle directly from my Ziss Hatchery. I can open a lid with one hand, squeeze a good shot of BBS with the bottle and move right to the next tank. Cleaning is easy, I simply fill it with tap water, give it a good shake, squeeze some clean water through the tip and dump out the rest.
This is a 75G tank you can see the single Oscar bottom center. He is approximately 6-7” now and he is getting smarter by the day! There is a pictus catfish that lives in the tunnel under the wood on the left have two bristlenose in tank as well. At first I could drop food on the right Oscar would start eating then I would drop food on left catfish would easily have time to get a few pieces, all good. Then had to start feeding in center and flow to the right so Oscar would follow trail of food then jump back and feed cat. All good? Then very purposefully kept him all the way right with big feeding jump back left and most days enough got down for cat. Not really all good? Now he acts like (YES ACTS LIKE!!) he is interested in the middle sweeping right or right end feeding, waits for me to drop on left then attacks food as fast as possible gobbles up every pellet, wafer, not even a chance for frozen to get through on left then takes his time wagging his tail at me like he’s struting and pecks every piece from the right!!! good news he’s going through a growth spurt. I think my next move will be finding a repashy the cat likes put a chunk on a stick and target feed. any suggestions? Any non Oscar related target feedings you have to do?
