Veggies for Tetras and Corys

I have a 10 gallon tank with (4) Neon and (4) Von Rio Tetras as well as (3) Julii Corys. Can these guys also have veggies? If so, what do they prefer?

TIA,
- Mandy

Yes you should skin the peas as the outer shell is not easily digestible (if at all)

with most veggies, partially cooking them is best - tenderizes 'em a bit for the fishies. (I do 1-2 minutes in the microwave)

I don't cook the zuc before putting it into the tank. I will nuke the peas for about 15 seconds in the microwave, but that's it.

I don't cook my zuchinni, either - just slice it and pop it in there - they reduce it to a skeleton overnight, usually. Peas do need some attention before they go in, and are wonderful roughage for active mid and upper water feeders.
