Plants goldfish won't eat?
 
I'm thinking of finally planting my tank with two goldfish in because it is looking a bit bare.
Are there any plants my fish won't eat?
Cheers

Which varieties of goldfish do you have? It may depend what you have. Singletails, fantails and ryukins tend to be more destructive towards plants than some fancies.

You can check out the list of plants allowed here.

The list has not been updated so I am adding Amazon swords, vallisnerias and Nymphaea lotus. Plenty of options for you.

Aye...The shub might enjoy turning some plants into garden salad.:lol: Your moor will be fine although be careful with the plants you pick. The blades could injure the eyes.
