Question Fresh Veggies

I recently started putting fresh veggies in my 55g. My fish have gone wild, esp. for the seeded cucumber. I would like input as to how often to feed veggies, what type and what type to avoid.

onion or radishes might not be too good of a idea - fish might not like them. would also maybe stay away from potato's and tomatoes but then again I haven't tried any of them and would assume the fish wouldn't like them.

Good veggies include cucumber (you know this already), yams (this is highly nutritious), squash such as zucchini, and peas. Blanch all of these first to kill bacteria and soften them. Squish the peas out of the little shells (=skins, not meaning the pods).

I've never heard of feeding veggies "too much," so maybe put a piece of one or two of these in each week? Be careful to remove any uneaten after a day or two, or they can fungus and rot.
