Angel snacks

What food could I feed my angel fish besides just flakes? I wanna give them a treat every now and then and I'm wondering what would be good for them.

Hi most fish including Angels will enjoy frozen food,especially bloodworm and brine shrimp. Just defrost it in some water then drain it before feeding to the fish.

Bloodworms, brine shrimp...

As far as vegetables... PEAS!!!

Shell them and squish them with your fingers and drop them in. Might take them a couple times to realize it's food. But they LOVE peas!

Any particular reason you don't just drop it in?

As for veggies, the cooked deshelled pea's are a favorite as are blanched strips of zucchini hung on veggies clips so they can nibble throughout the day. Occasionally a small broccoli floret hung on a veggie clip is also enjoyed.
