Weighing your foods you usually feed (total of one day) would be a good start. From there, you can try to decide if you feed "enough" and ask here if you'd like. :)

and going hand in hand with that is weighing your fish at regular intervals to determine actual growth so that you can make direct relationships between the exact amount you feed and the resultant growth. :)

I weighed them about a two months ago. I will weight them today and see how much they've changed. Maybe you can tell me if that is enough growth or not...?

I use beef heart for my cichlids, but I haven't fed it to my goldies. It just seems odd for some reason to feed it to goldfish. I'm not sure why it doesn't seem odd for cichlids though. Hmmmmm.

Probably because we see goldfish as so cute. It just seems wrong to feed them beef heart! It's probably also partly due to them being mostly herbivores. I think that most people feed WAY too much protein to their fish.

I repeat, goldfish are not mostly herbivores. You may consider them omnivores, but they are not even close to being herbivores. :(

In what way do you consider people feeding too much protein to their fish? How much protein do you consider too much?

I think we need to be really careful making broad, sweeping statements. :)

:bingo They will eat everything and anything meaning they are omnivores just like most humans......

Why people think Beef hearts are fatty, have you looked at one not alot of fat unless the cow was contained in a small pen, Beef hart has more beefy ness to it than most parts of the cow. just like a tongue.

Goldfish should be feed a mixed diet of food,

You mean because it's a muscle? :rofl :rofl :rofl

Anyway, here is the nutritional value of the SB Bay Beefheart plus, and Koko is right in that it has very little fat. I do not know about other brands though.

I think it came out wrong when I said fatty. No, it is not drenched in fat however, beef tends to be fatty as is. I do think I worded it badly, sorry. Bloodworms are healthier however, and help enhance wen growth and color, and being an aquatic protein source would theoretically be easier to digest for a fish.

Seeing as I see many more people feeding bloodworms rather than beef heart, I will stick yo the worms, I think.

Here's one of Steve from Raingarden's articles on Bloodworms and why they are so good for your goldfish. It's a good read.

Wow! That is fantastic! I am impressed by the ancestry shared between common carp and bloodworms.

Ha! Yes! That would be quite odd; an ancestry between a fly larvae and a fish! :rofl
