What's on the menu today?

Recommended Posts

Tuyet (My Black Moor) : "What's on the menu today?

Me: "Chopped up peas."

Tuyet: "Again..?"

That would have been our conversation between me and Tuyet today. So, I cleared up my overcrowding problem lately, but I know I need to feed my Black Moor some different food. Before I knew better, I always fed all my Goldfish flakes every. single. day. If that wasn't bad enough, I never knew to soak them. Either I had Goldfish with stomachs made of steel, or I was extremely lucky. They never had any diseases, not even swim bladder.

All I have right now is a can of flake food (That I haven't touched in a long while since I knew it could give Goldfish swim bladder...) a can of floating pellets, and frozen peas. I'm not sure Tuyet likes Spinach very much. So, what kind of food would you suggest to feed to a hungry Black Moor? :feedme

ProGold, or Repashy, or even those floating pellets if you soak them until they sink. Veggies are good, so are fruits on occasion. The 'Goldfish Food' pinned topic section has lots of yummy ideas. :)

you'll want to get a good staple food that you can feed daily. A high quality sinking pellet is one good choice. Good brands that you can often find locally include: omega one, new life spectrum, Hikari (Saki Hikari purple bag is one popular kind). Progold from www.goldfishconnection.com is another popular pellet here.

Other options for a staple food include homemade gel food (there are lots of recipes in the food section) or repashy soilent green (a commercially made gel food that you can get from our site sponsor tastyworms.com, some LFS will also carry this).

I'll have to look somewhere to buy food locally :)

I would suggest some freeze dried tubifex worms or bloodworms as a nice treat! :)

Please soak those before you feed.

Instead of freeze dried, frozen is better. :)
