What Fish Eat

By November 28, 2012

Follow me on:

If you are like me, you are probably still recovering from the annual group gluttony we all partake in, better known as Thanksgiving dinner. Today when I went to feed my fish, it hit me that last week while I was shoveling down turkey, cranberry sauce, and all manner of pastries, they were eating dry boring flakes.

It almost made me want to toss some mashed potatoes and gravy in the tank. Fortunately I came to my senses in time. But I can't get the question out of my head - are my fish bored with their food? Do they secretly covet those late night peanut butter sandwiches that I sneak down to the kitchen for?

And are they getting the right nutrients? If I can't feed them exciting food, it should at least be healthy. Guess it's time to crack out Nutrition 101 and brush up on fish food nutrition.
