My three little clowns have recovered from ich, and I put them back in the 30 gal. tank yesterday (it's been 15 days, and the spots disappeared after 3 days, so I figure it's fairly safe..). They're so active--it seems like they're happy to be home again. Anyway, when I put zucchini in the isolation tank with them they wouldn't touch it, but today I tried again and EUREKA! They discovered it's a food source. First one tentatively tasted it, and then he was all over it, quietly clicking away. As soon as either of the other two approached, he chased them away.
