Similarly one may ask, what human food can you feed a goldfish?
As well as flakes and pellets designed specifically for them, goldfish will eat peas (with the shells removed), boiled vegetables, bloodworms and brine shrimp. The above foods make a great change to flakes and pellets. You can read about other treats for your goldfish here!
Likewise, can you feed goldfish bread? While goldfish are omnivores, they do not need a lot of extra protein in their diet. Frozen foods are usually enough to keep them healthy, so it's not necessary to feed extra meats. Never feed your goldfish bread! Don't give foods to your goldfish that contain extra ingredients like salt or dairy.
Herein, can I feed my fish worms?
Yes! But freshwater fish love tubifex worms and thrive on them if they are cleaned properly. If the water is clear they are clean and can be used to feed your fish. Don't feed them to your fish until the water is clear, so continue to rinse them as needed.
Do goldfish eat lettuce?
Although goldfish will eat other types of lettuce, red leaf lettuce is easy for them to chew and unlikely to cause digestive problems. Rinse the lettuce in warm water then attach it to a lettuce-clip inside the tank. Cooked baby peas are an excellent addition to your goldfishes' diet.
