Welcome to my goldfish website. This site is not intended to be a serious essay on goldfish keeping, but a little bit of fun, to show that Goldfish make great, intelligent, interactive pets, who should be treated with love and respect!
Goldfish like most animals thrive on a varied diet, and they love little extras, especially fruit and veg. As Goldfish don't have a stomach, but a long digestive tract, it is possible to overfeed them, so only ever find tiny amounts. You should always peel and deseed fruit, giving your fish the squishy pulpy parts.
Many goldfish enjoy their greens, although mine have a sweet tooth and like fruit, broccoli is a favourite of many fish. Mine however love peas, peas are a special food for goldfish as they help prevent
swimbladder problems by acting as a laxative - it's a good idea to give your goldfish a pea or two a week to help prevent these problems.
You should also feed a good sinking pellet food - mine get Fish Sempai Pro Gold from Canada (see links) but you can buy food from your pet specialist or ebay.
So how do I know which foods are their favourites? Well it's a guess really, but I have noticed that the things they seem to like the most they suck the fastest!
