Can i feed my fish peas?
I havent fed my fish any veggies, really, other then algae wafers, and i dont know if that counts. Could i feed them peas? ive got 2 female bettas, an angelfish, platy, 5 black phantoms. Can they eat peas? And, how would i prepare them?

I feed all my fish peas once a week, it clears there system apparently.
Just make sure you squish it and take the shell off it, they will love it !

It clears their system, but I'm not sure it does much more than an algae tab would...

Most vegetables can be blanched for fish though.. I make my own food out of shrimp, garlic, and whatever green leafy green is relatively cheap... (usually collards, chard, chicory, etc.)

be careful with some fish. Remember bettas are typically "meat" eaters and their digestive system isnt meant for much veggies. Feeding a betta the pea could actually make them constipated
