Blanch any vegetables and de-shell peas particularly. If you have hot enough tap water, running them in that for a few minutes is all that is needed, as long as they are soft for the fish.

It helps make it more manageable for the fish to eat.

You can put it in without blanching it, I do it with my cichlids but then again they rip it to shreds anyway. Most other fish though require it to be blanched to aid digestion.
