hi

I have 1 comet and a common goldfish in an aquarium(soon to be replaced by tropicals....). I feed them flake every day and supplement their diet with Tetra Delica bloodworms once a week and cucumber occasionally. I also just tried them on celery today. they are both happy however seeing as iam about to give them away I want to treat them, what else should I be using to supplement their diet?

any ideas would be appreciated.

thanks
jon

Live plants such as duckweed and elodea are good, parboiled romaine lettuce, spinach or skinned cooked peas..
Also chopped earthworms, daphnia or brine shrimp.

just give them a rinse, and drop them in one at a time and make sure they get eaten, don't Over Feed. I usualy tie the worms onto a string and that way the fish will suck them off it, that way if they don't eat it, I have nothing to clean up. Depending on the size of your fish you could just feed them whole as long as they are apropriate sizes for your fish.

or you can take a sharp knife, rinse them and then chop them up. Kinda messy.
