Well I finally remembered to get some peas for my O's while I was out running my errands today. I'm very happy to say that like every other variety of food I've ever given them they were more than pleased with the peas. I was a little worried since the peas sink and everything they eat is floating but the peas never even touched the bottom. also picked up some romaine hearts and will be testing them out. I think the peas also have given them a bit of an energy burst as they have been whipping around the tank since they had them.

I didn't know there was such a thing as shelling a pea. Please tell me I didn't just hurt them. They were just frozen sweet peas.

The fish are not able to digest the shell of the peas, that is why you have to pop them out to feed.

Damn. Well they only had like 3 each. I saw and read so many posts about giving them peas and didn't see anything about shelling. Are they in danger now or will they just spit up the skin at some point? I'm officially having a panic attack now

Whew. Good to hear. I'll end my search for Xanax now lol. I will remove the skin in the future. Happy that they were so eager to eat them since many of you here have told me how good it is for them to have a vegetable source.

Peas have little nutritional value. but are good for the digestive system, a laxative of sorts. My fish of all species have been having a few odd peas on occasion for many years. thawed but unshelled, never a problem. If you have some Oscars that appear to eat anything, try a bit of green pepper. Higher vitamin C count than traditional fruit. I have only 2 out of a couple dozen cichlids that will eat it, but would be a good thing if yours will.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
