what kind of "snacks" can fish eat?
 
Snacks like a bit of fruit or vegetables or gelatin or something that we eat and can also give to our fish but without harming their health.

are there some snacks? do we have to buy every food product for the fish in the pet stores?

I really want to give my danios a variety of food so if you guys have suggestions I would really appreciate it :)

My fish love the occasional shelled peas and zucchini. They go nuts for chopped market shrimp also.

Gel foods aren't an option I think unless you can manage bite sized pieces for them. My goldfish, loaches, plecos and snails absolutely loved the gel food recipes I made though. Just sardines/tuna/mackerel, Knox gel, baby foods (pure vegetable-based), multivitamins, acidophilus, vitamin C, calcium, etc.

If you have to give high sugar fruits and vegetables, do it sparingly.
