Constipation


tmntfan2003

In health class I learned that the common result of constipation in people is not enough fiber in the diet. We can eat fruits and vegetables to prevent getting constipated. Could this be applied to goldfish as well?

Peaches is right. Peas are an excellent source for constipation in gf. A diet rich in peas and veggies will help them to avoid this. However remember protein is an important factor as well.

Hi. I have to recommend the homemade gel food that you can find on this website. Check it out!

It holds pretty true actually. A lot of people feed peas because in addition to having some fiber, they're a gentle laxative that can help keep a goldfish "Cleaned out", but fiber is important. Feeding blanched vegetables of any kind is a big help there. Before I ever heard of peas I fed my fish romaine lettuce, and they did just fine.
