Collard greens

Can my Clownfish eat collard greens? (How about cichlids, bettas, and glofish?)

Some fish will eat things such as lettuce, but there isn't very much nutritional value to it. In terms of most of the fish listed, consuming such a thing would require it to be processed as they aren't the best grazers in the world when it comes to things that don't grow under water.

Perhaps a medium steaming to tenderize the greens.

Maybe dice the greens up in small bits, though I guess you could add a chunk of leaf to make it easier to remove later. Try a tiny amount, sometimes like with people it takes a bit of time to get used to the new food.

Snails and some other fish will like these. Remove uneaten portion after 6-8 hours I would think.

It still won't have any nutritional value.

I think you are thinking of lettuce, Collard Greens is a nutritional power house green food.
Here there is a chart of the nutritional values, Chart is down a little ways - edit: box color is orange top with orange and green highlights.

Steamed is ideal,

Collard greens
