    Default Coffee drinking fish

    So I was rounding up the 10 or so bristlenose plecostomus in my 20 gallon bedroom tank; I had most of them caught and in a five gallon trashcan (with water in it) when I hear "splash"..... my youngest son had knocked my 1/2 cup of warm coffee into the bucket.

    Well I grabbed my other bucket, filled it partly with tank water, and then took both buckets into the kitchen where I dumped the one into the sink (through a net) and relocated the fish.

    I wonder if the fish are now addicted to caffeine? They were active at the fish store where I dropped them off.

    now that there are only two bristlenose plecos in that 20 gallon tank I can use it for when the plecos in the 75 gallon decide to breed.

    I take the cave with the male inside and put it in the 20 gallon, and then when the male decides to let the fry out I take and put him and an empty cave back in the 75 gallon tank.

    I feed the fry cucumbers and zucchini along with algae wafers.

    I will say the water color in the coffee filled bucket was perfect for a blackwater Amazon tank.
