When feeding Bristlenoses (kept for their algae eating abilities - so this
question is just about within the scope of APD!) with Zucchini (or Courgette
in UK) everyone seems to blanche it first.  Is there some particular reason
for this?  I've just been peeling it & putting into the tank raw (& stuffed
full of gravel to stop it floating away).  The B'noses seem to have no
problem eating it.  Does blanching get rid of any undesirable substances?
