PotatoFish Posted November 16, 2020 Share Posted November 16, 2020 I wanted to share a list of the food I feed my goldfish, compare with others to see what other fun things they might enjoy, and share my observations. Goldfish Staple: Sera - Goldy Basic (stopped) Hikari - Cichlid Excel (current) Munch Munch Forage Food red leaf lettuce duckweed steamed broccoli cilantro (new thing) Treats garlic (raw, finely chopped) grape (no seeds, finely chopped) orange (inner slice skin peeled off) Millepet - Gammarus (for turtles) *I THINK Millepet is owned by Sera (can any confirm?) Results: Loppy the Goldfish (because her abdomen is uneven, bought her that way, didn't know at the time but love her anyway) was bought for a whopping $0.88 (KRW to USD) at 1 inch from nose to peduncle. One year later, she is 4.5 inches from nose to peduncle (easily 6 inches with the tail), and about 3 inches from the middle of her back to the base of her pelvic fins. She does "gulp" air when eating duckweed and bits of lettuce that get ripped off and float at the surface. HOWEVER, she has never had constipation or any swim bladder issues. I feared she might because she's lopsided, but she seems like a perfectly normal wiggly-butt goldfish that is wonderfully active. Here's Loppy today and on the day I bought her. It's like she was saying, "Pick meeeeeeee!"...so I did. 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
