Just because your fish aggressively eat things that are not natural food items doesn’t mean that’s what you should feed. We’ve all heard weird stories about the things fish eat, which include everything from lettuce to lunch meat, but the ideal diet should consist of high quality foods pulled straight from the ocean. The problem with unnatural foods is they don’t provide all of the nutrition needed by the fish. Of course, when a fish is stressed and refuses to eat most conventional foods, we do need to branch out and try things that aren’t quite normal. Fish that don’t eat will not survive, and if weird foods need to be implemented to get the fish to eat, then more natural foods can eventually be mixed in.
