Not me, your fish....goldfish need brineshrimp at least once a week to keep from having swimming problems. Most people think that a floating goldfish means dropsy...a swim bladder disorder. Most of the time the fish simply needs to poo! Gas gets caught up in its poor little man-made twisted intestine and to the top they go. You see, a goldfish used to look like a Koi thousands of years ago, but through selective breeding they have mutated into the little round, unstreamlined shapes we have made them. (Darwins theory of UNnatural selection) And with that thier intestines have become twisted so that they get constipated very easily. Brine shrimp=fiber=poo. Also keep anacharis (a plant)with them so they can eat somewhat healthy! You will know they appreciate it when they wag thier tails!

I also heard from somewhere that peas have a mild laxative effect. My goldies get peas everyday and theyve never had any constipation problems so it must be doing something!
