I dont know specifically for your fish, but mine go crazy for zucchini, spinach and peas. Blanched of course.

Peas (shelled), spinach, kale, yams, zucchini, cucumber; all blanched. Not all fish will eat their veggies so try these and see how it goes. Also, fish will often refuse new food like this, so it may take a bit. The squash-type will need to be weighed down, though upper fish might eat it floating.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
