    Is it okay to feed my Goldfish peas even if they're not showing any signs of swim bladder disease? I just want to make sure that they don't get it...

    It should be no problem.
    I usually shell them first, especially for small fish.

    Good morning,

    I agree with Dino, feeding your fish peas on a regular basis as a treat should be fine. I recommend thawed, frozen peas and not peas from a can due to salt issues.

    I warm the peas, slice them in half and remove the skin. Then slice them into sizes the fish can eat. Make sure they have cooled! I just soak them in warm (not hot) water for a bit.
