I've read a lot into broccoli in a fishes diet and have found a lot of conflicting views.
Some say it is an ideal snack for all fishes to nibble as well as nutritious.
HOWEVER, I have also read that it can cause gassy-ness particularly in fancy goldfish. It also really stinks out my tank after it has been in there for just a couple of minutes.

What personal experience have you guys had with it?
Am I doing something wrong as it is fouling the water slightly?

Thank you :)

I have not tried feeding broccoli. I tend to think that our fish are better off if we focus fish foods on what the fish would eat naturally in the wild. This is why I won't use many commercially prepared foods that contain too much wheat or other starches.
