  1. I have been having trouble getting my ryukin to start eating blanched spinach and other vegetables, so I decided to try teaching him to recognize blanched spinach as food by using repashy. For three weeks, I have been slicing thin scrapes of repashy so they resemble blanched spinach, and placing them among some spinach inside the tank and all three of my fish willingly ate the repashy, and some of the spinach. Since goldfish are able to smell the food, I was worried that when I took the repashy out and only used the vegetables, they would not be interested. I kept the amount of repashy and spinach constant for the three weeks feeding spinach twice a week, and around 10 minutes ago I have just added spinach and no repashy. All three fish ate the spinach in the end which was good to see! They were a little hesitant for a while but they got into it eventually. Turns out the sight of food plays just as much of an important roll as the smell, and using the repashy to train him has worked better than I expected! The slices can also be scrapes out of the bowl the repashy is microwaved in. Here's what the repashy looks like prior to adding among the vegetables (this is scraped out of the bowl): (The dog likes it too!) The only issue I had was the repashy breaking apart and falling to the bottom of the tank, however keeping the slices thicker where they are attached helped keep them together with the spinach! I thought it would be worth while sharing this option for those of you who are having trouble getting your goldfish to recognise things such as spinach as food. It would be interesting to hear if others have the same outcome or not Thanks for reading!
