The (Almost) Complete Guide to Fresh Food for Fish!

Hi,
Post below about what foods your fish have tried and liked! Nothing processed! Feel free to post recipes too. We all like photos! Try to list what fish ate it also.

I'll start with what I've tried-

Kiwi- Rummynose tetras and cories were big fans!
Carrot(shredded)- all my fish loved this treat!

The (Almost) Complete Guide to Fresh Food for Fish!

Peas- mollies, fry, cories, guppies CAE, harlequins, danios, betta, gourami

Raspberries- same as above minus the CAE

To make the raspberries I put them in the microwave with water for 45sec and then shoved half of it in a straw, and waved it around in the tank till all the little pieces on the outside fell off and then did the half that was inside the straw.
Edit:

Zucchini- CAE, guppies and cories were all slightly interested but not all that much

Slices of zucchini! Fish that loved it: Loaches- clowns, yoyos, angelicus, dwarfs, kuhlis, sinibotia- and plecos! (Ok, that's prettymuch everything that was in the tank I tried this in.)

My goldies love their fruits and veggies!! Some things I occasionally cook (such as carrots) but generally they get a puréed mix of the following daily: spinach, carrots, zucchini, cucumbers, peas, broccoli (all uncooked frozen/fresh). I also feed peppers, asparagus tips, green beans, various dark green/red lettuces and cauliflower. They get a greater variety in summer as I have a large garden.

For fruits, chunks of various melons, various berries, tangerine/orange segments, soft apple/pear, banana, etc. Once again, seasonality dictates what I have available to feed but canned options in plain juice work well, too.

Thanks! I just fed a tiny bit of orange that the cories sucked up. Little hoovers. My one female guppy is choking on what I think is pumpkin and has been since around noon so word of caution- cut the pumpkin VERY small. It may also be gravel.
