Maybe not a good idea right now with this e. Coli stuff going around.
I actually thought about that, and I’m wondering if e. Coli affects fish. I just want to make a fresh diet for them, fresh plants, brine shrimp, frozen food, I’m fine with flakes and pellets, but it seems interesting.

How about cabbage, I have some that I chopped

It was just from this one farm that suddenly had an outbreak of e. Coli in their crops.

Yeah, I just don’t know if it’s too dirty, could I feed my fish cabbage or iceberg lettuce, and could brine shrimp be too dirty?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by dirty.

Brine shrimp won’t make a mess only if your fish don’t eat it.
Bottom dwellers will easily find them, mine love it.

Thanks for scaring me, I’m extremely sensitive to the thought of bacterial outbreaks
Me too, but most (possibly) affected stores have taken it off the shelves, and many restaurants aren't using it either. So throw it out if you have it but you should be just fine.

I just had arugula on my bagel, not lettuce.

The problem with my fish is that, if they haven’t eaten it before, they don’t know it’s food, and then they don’t eat it, and that’s where the trouble starts.

Just FYI, the CDC is advising against eating all romaine unless you know specifically where it was grown - the outbreak happened in the Yuma, Arizona region. Problem is most lettuce sold commercially doesn’t have any details on what growing region it actually came from... just where it was packaged.
