So far I have learnt and discovered that my fish like cucumber and cooked peas... And other fruit or vegetables that tropical fish will eat?
I feed my three goldfish, 7 panda Coreys and 30+ Dalmatian Mollies cooked zucchinI and peas (not at the same time) but I hear that they will eat string beans too.

do we have to take the skin off after cooking the string beans?

my goldfish made strings disappear the one time that I put cooked string beans their tank but only after I stopped watching them. They acted as though they couldn’t bite it or something….like when humans Bob for apples in buckets of water.
