Can i feed cucumber to guppies, platys, swortails, and ottos? There is a guy in town and he has this HUGE garden across the street and he keeps giving us vegitables and we have no idea what to do with all of it so I figured maybe I could feed my fish a slice of cucumber as a treat?

I put a few cucumber slices in my tank. Actually, my guppies and guppy fry LOVE it. My platy is fine with it, and my swordtail is scared of the platy so she didnt get to eat any yet. the slices float, so the cories didnt get any and the otto just ignores them. Oh well. I guess maybe bigger slices will sink?
