I have orange trees. So naturally I tried feeding my fish oranges. They don't like them at all. I pull the uneaten slice out the next day. They taste it, of course, but spit it right back out. Now a nice, fat grub is really tasty.

I actually tried lime for the first time a few days ago because of a suggestion you had made in a previous post... they really weren't into it! They tried it and then ignored it! Guess I will have to stick to oranges.

Funny that some of them don't like lime. Mine are that way with oranges and lemons now. They will eat them, but not with the vigor that hey have for lime. Wonder if it's a single tail thing?

I didn't feed fresh anything to these 3 until coming here and learning that people did it. By then, they were all several years old.

I actually think they enjoy working at something like this. It seems to give them something to do. Heck, they normally spend most of the day rooting through the gravel, uprooting the live and plastic plants, tearing the the leaves on live plants, and even knocking over the petrified wood. So time spent on a hunk of citrus is less time spent vandalizing the tank......I'm just sayin'!

:exactly Yes, they need things to do!

I agree. An engaged fish is a healthy happy fish! :)

Austinado, the lime was a success...after a little time after they got used to it. The pucker face is hilarious :rofl

LOL!! Success! Glad they loved it.

Mine have gotten to the point where they recognize the slice if I hold it up to the outside of the tank.......then swim to the glass and just watch it intently until I put it in the water.

Thank you for the suggestion. Somehow I like giving them lime better than orange (shrug)

Goldfish are such stalkers :rofl

Yeah, mine actually get a piece torn enough that they can get it in their mouths, and then they jerk their heads side-to-side just like a shark, in order to tear it free. The are serious hunters.
