Red leaf lettuce

Recommended Posts

I'm mostly fasting my upside down fish for a couple of days and was thinking of just putting in a piece of red leaf lettuce for her to nibble on. Do you blanch it first? and if so for how long in the microwave?

Nope, just rinse it and stick it on a veggie clip. :D

Raw is fine but blanching it may make it easier for her to eat. I blanched some spinach before in the microwave by putting it in a cup with a little bit of water and microwaved it for 10 seconds. (More or less time I guess for your wattage of microwave.) My goldies really don't like it blanched but my tropical fish do so I suppose you can try both ways to see what she prefers.

 

Good Luck with you goldfish, I'm rooting for her to get better! ;)

RLL is so tender there is no need to blanch . . . .

To make it even easier for her to eat, you can snip it a few times with scissors to sort of fray the edges. I used to that with mine when they were tiny :)
