This instructible will show you how to make a fresh veggie holder for your fish aquarium. A lot of veggies I have tried still tend to float around, which makes it hard for the fish that eat veggies to catch.
Step 1: Tools
One simple tool needed, needle nose type pliers.
Step 2: Materials
1 Suction cup
1 paper clip
I recycled these suction cups from out of my junk box. Cant remember where I got them but Im sure hobby lobby or other craft stores may have them, Wal-mart might as well.
Step 3: Straighten Paper Clip
Straighten the paper clip and make a small loop in the end of it.
Step 4: Wrap
Wrap the looped end of the paper clip around the suction cup a couple of times and snug up around the cup.
Step 5: Bend
Make a u bend in the clip and cut short so that the end of the wire doesn't poke any fish trying to nibble of the veggies.
Step 6: Thread Veggies
Thread the veggie you want to feed onto the paper clip. I usually blanch the veggie for about 30 sec in the microwave before feeding, it softens the veggie.
Step 7: Attach
Attach the suction cup to the side of the aquarium at what ever level your fish usually swim at.
