Why We Like It

We love this totally edible environmental enrichment! Not only do the cucumber slices provide animals with food, but they're also great landing spots for crabs, fish, and more.

Materials
  • Long plastic rod

  • A way to secure the plastic rod to the top of the aquarium

  • Slices of cucumber

How to Make It
  1. Thread the slices of cucumber onto the plastic rod with a good amount of space between each one

  2. Submerge the enrichment in the aquarium and secure it to the top
