Is it ok...

to feed my goldfish frozen peas as their regular diet instead of flakes - everytime I feed them the flakes at least one or both of them can swim to the bottom. Is there another type of food I can feed them or are the peas ok?
Thanks
Lori

I think a variety of food is best. You can give them peas, but I would still feed them flakes or a pellet food. Peas alone would not have all the nutrients they need to live a long and healthy life.

hi
would it be possible for you to soak the flakes first.
a clean container with tank water in,drop the flake in,leave to soak up the water,
then feed to the fish.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
