- - Fresh Veggies
|ColoradoUtah ||05-04-2013 05:54 PM |
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.

My crayfish goes crazy on carrots... But not the fishies ;-)

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.
