My goldfish love oranges too. The first time I gave it to them they looked at me like "what is That?" I let it stay in the tank for 3 days (I know I know) did a water change and most of the orange was gone when I took it out, and yes I fed them normally too.
Now when I give an orange, it is gone pretty darn quickly. I give some to my community tank too, they like it, but not as much as the goldfish do.

My local pet stores (as well as the local PetCo) have a fairly limited range of brands: TetraMin, Wardley, and some Hikari...

I've had issues with Wardley flakes clouding the water (even if I feed lightly), so I but TetraMin tropical flakes. For sinking pellets I usually buy Wardley. For dried worms and such, I buy Hikari is possible, or Wardley if Hikari is unavailable.

I may ask the nice local pet store if they can start carrying New Life Spectrum.

For my cichlids, I have started with Aquarian brand pellet, as well as their Krill for my SW. Both have gone over real well. Seems like a quality brand, maybe worth a try.

The most important thing with food in my opinion is to feed a variety. Definitely don't pick one brand/type of food and only feed that. My fish love bloodworms, krill, peas, zuchinni, and they absolutely go insane for live crickets.

Big Al's Online is where I got my NLS food.

I also feed many types of flake, freeze-dried, frozen, and pelleted foods. NLS is the staple though.

For flake, I feed Omega One. For sinking wafer, I've found Hikari to cloud the water the least, and they last several hours so everyone is sure to get some--my Ancistrus is a hog.

The flake food I really like is TetraMin tropical crisps. all of the flakes are just about the same size and they have 3 types. 1 designed for color, 1 designed for growth and 1 designed for health. I don't know how much of a diffirance it is between each flake but I like to think it helps keep my fish alive while cycling if I only feed them the ones for health lol
