Goldfish bobs after eating everything... out of ideas

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I have had my two goldies for almost 6/7 years. They are thriving and a nice size, and doing well except for Bob... she STILL bobs after eating almost ANYTHING. And yes, everything... I've tried ALL the gel foods, made my own, frozen worms, flakes, pellets soaked, sometimes Peas  etc. the only things she doesn't bob after eating are:

Leafy greens like Kale, Spinach, seaweed and the Food Triangles that you drop in because you're going out of town.

 

I feel bad because i know she won't get all the nutrition from just leafy greens, but not sure what to do... She'll float at the top for like 12 hours then come down ravenous to eat again then float again then collapse at the bottom after days of doing this.

 

Any ideas???? Are leafy greens enough??

Thanks!

Duckweed and a few pellets.

I've had good luck with red leaf lettuce in the past.  You might also try giving her 1 thawed bloodworm (that's one worm) and see how she does.  Then, the next time, try 2.  Then, 3 etc. until you reach her tolerable limit (not too many, obviously).  I've found that bloodworms complement greens pretty well in completing the dietary profile.
