Beside the fact there great for your goldies......It makes you tanks water smell well like oranges LOL. Its so pleasent. :)

My tanks always smell nuetral, They have no smell like regular water.

But when you feed your goldies an orange it makes your water smell sooooooo gooood at least in my tanks. Do you have the same effect in your water? or is it just me, I usually keep the orange in there for an hour or so.

For those who have not tried it yet, go ahead it wont hurt. Unless if your having Ph problems.

Just wanted to say that :D

I'm ambivalent. :)

The fruits are pretty high sugar and from what I've read, I worry about goldies having high blood sugar issues from foods with a high glycemic index. I need to splurge and get a good textbook, as I'm still learning about fish physiology and nutrition myself.

I usually feed kiwi cuz it's higher in vitamin C and somewhat lower in sugar than oranges.

I'm going to try and feed my goldies oranges this week. I will buy some when I go to the supermarket. I will see how they go :)
