This probably is not going to be of much help but I have seen many aquarium shops place Romaine lettuce leaves in the aquariums and the fish love it. There is also the little frozen worm things and stuff like that at the pet stores.

Are fish naturally vegan? :confused:

I think some fish eat plants and some eat meat just like the critters on land

What kind of fish are they? Inside in an aquarium or outside in a pond? I believe most fish eat bugs and other fish and stuff. Once you let me know or you yourself find out what kind they are they it can be googled to see what they eat.

I had this boyfriend a long time ago that was an uptight neurotic lawyer. He had a fish aquarium with very expensive fish. I went to put a handful of sprouts in and he started to shriek not to do it. I giggled and put them in. The fish went ballistic, darting around eating the sprouts. It looked like they were dancing. He admitted he never saw the fish eat with such enthusiasm. The relationship ended not long after.

My 10 cent goldfish have now grown to 10 inches. We were told that they would not grow too large for the aquarium they were in. Well, they can barely exercise now and I keep watching freecycle for an aquarium. By watching what I see in the stores I feed them slices of zucchini and cucumber along with spinach leaves or any other green I have. The store plants have gotten too expensive for me as they only last a couple of days with 10 inch fish. Their flakes consist of many types of corn, soy, oat and yeast but does also have parts of other fish and shrimps. Personally I think that it is very wrong of me to try to force a creature dependant on me to divert from its natural diet. Feeding my dogs raw which I learned on this site has taught me that they love what is best for them. They do not understand that I may be too broke or have mental convictions that prevent me from providing the food that they love. However this question made me wonder if I got something like spirulina and made my own flakes in the dehydrator - if that would be nutritionally adequate. I will leave that experiment for someone here.
P.S. I am going to try the sprouts tomorrow. They look kind of wormy to a fish I suppose.

Mine didn't like the sprouts at all. I lost a fish to experimental feeding so am not very inclined to try much. The seaweed has salt that would probably offend the plecostomus (8 inches).
These fish are such characters! They will feed on the spinach leaf but when I enter the room they go away from it and try to pretend they had no interest in it at all.

Fish, even goldfish, are naturally omnivores. They aren't herbivorous, sorry. I'm sure you could do some research and find out how to feed them a more natural diet vs the processed pellets & flakes from the store.
