My friend says to put cheese strands in the tank for them to eat but i'm not sure if i should. He says he puts them in his all the time.

You could check the food thread for a really detailed answer, because I'm sure somebody over there knows for sure, but I think I've been told, No, bad for fish.

Besides, there are so many other good things for fish to eat -- broccoli, lettuce, orange slice, peas, plankton... They will never miss cheese if they don't get any, and will probably love the stuff they can have, if they're anything like my oinkers. :D

Actually goldfish can eat small bits of chedder cheese, but it's not a good idea to give it to them very often as their digestive system isn't meant to break it down. So it can be given as a rare treat.

That's right g.g93, just a few things to keep in mind before you feed your fishies a banquet. B)

1. Reputable companies spend millions of dollars on research and development to find the right combination of ingredients to give your fish all the nutritional requirements they need. Therefore, in my opinion, commercial foods should be the mainstay of gf diet. (Unless you are dataguru and can provide a nutritional breakdown of any food you prepare)

2. Homemade foods or unprocessed veges & fruit take longer to be broken down by the biobugs in your tank. It is very easy to pollute your tank if you use too much "natural" food. Once again this is just my opinion, but extra care needs to be taken in smaller tanks.
