What are good vegetables for fish?

Hello, I was reading online and came across a site that said that certain vegies are good for your fish as treats. Is this true, and if it is, what are good ones?

My tiger bars love zucchini almost as much as blood worms.

Vegetables for Aquarium Fish

Hello Humm...

Research minced garlic for your fish. I've been feeding a little once a week or so for quite a while. It's vitamin content is as high or higher than other vegetables and has a natural antibiotic that I understand strengthens the fishes' immune system. Don't worry, it doesn't make the tank water smell.

Peas are good too. Mine all seem to really like them.

Many veggies work well for tropical fish.... blanched zucchini is my tanks favorite, followed by cooked, deshelled slightly smushed peas, blanched cucumber, and sometimes a small broccoli floret.

For goldies most all veggies, blanched or raw and fruits are eaten. Cooked, deshelled pea's actually should be fed a couple times a week to keep them from getting constipated.
