Oranda bit of more than it could chew - Help!

This is a discussion on Oranda bit of more than it could chew - Help! within the Freshwater and Tropical Fish forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; --> Flakes make my goldfish floaty, too. But I'm really glad that she's recovering well. My goldfish boys don't really like eating spinach that much ...

Flakes make my goldfish floaty, too. But I'm really glad that she's recovering well. My goldfish boys don't really like eating spinach that much either. I almost have to trick them into eating it. I hand-feed my guys so they are trained to come and eat from my fingers. I wave my hands over the tank like I'm getting ready to feed them at normal dinner time and instead of the normal dinner, I'll stick in a cube of spinach. Because they are so "excited" for dinner they scarf it up before they know what it is (kinda like tricking a kid into eating veggies).

I've also found that cucumber is another goldfish favorite. I chop it up into bite-sized cubes and then freeze it. They go made for the stuff. Every once in a while when I have an orange, I'll cut up a slice and feed it to them. Kale, red lettuce, and collard greens are other good things to try.

Since we know you have a floaty goldfish, you should avoid foods like broccoli and green beans.

I'm really glad I could help you through this! Hopefully you'll have little (not for long!) Mona around for another 10 years.
