It seems that it mentions heating to soften the fruit to cut.

But I have heard from GF keepers to minimize fruits in their diets. And that daily fruit might not be healthy.

Welcome to the community.

Do you have Goldfish?

What kind?

I heard you can only feed them fruit once every 3 days or more. Is that true?

Nice, a big GF!

Honestly I do not know the actual answer of how often. But I know it was mentioned as sparingly. Gf need a good amount of fiber for good digestion and tha amount of sugar in fruit, which doesn't usually have much fiber and also usually has too much sugar, and would generally be too high for a good regular diet.

In nature, GF wouldn't eat much fruit. But I bet they would eat it if it was in the water, lol!

Also not absolutely positive but I think especially easy with melon like honey dew and cantaloupe. I'm deciding again whether to keep a GF aquarium or pond. A friend of mine is keeping my GF in their pond for now. So I would also like to know this for sure!
