Additional foods

by ChristinaBug2890

Other than Zucchini are there any kitchen/garden foods that my fish (clown loaches, blood parrots) will enjoy? I do not use any chemicals in my gardens so Id like to throw in a few earthworms over the summer if i can and also anything else you guys can suggest...I'd really like to spoil my fishies :)

Have you seen any mention of boiled peas anywhere? I managed to kill my clown loach so don't listen to me, but it seems like peas are usually mentioned whenever zucchini is mentioned.

cucumber, earth worms, fresh lettuces, almost any of your leafy greens, do not use iceberg lettuce as it's almost void of any type of nutrients... i like to chop it up really fine and put it in the tank the parrots will love it and because most of the blood parrots i have ever seen can't seem to move their lips very well in order to tare off bits and pieces it's a great way to make sure they get some. my cichlids loved romaine hearts cut up into little strips.
hope this helps,

i feed my koi/goldfish/carp every fruit and veggie i eat... everything from strawberries to spinach... but i wouldn't recomend it for every fish...

try oranges... the vitamin C is good for the fish and i hear it calms the goldfish down... but i don't think anything could calm down them coldwater predators...
