How bad is this? I usually buy frozen cooked peas that usually need only thawing. This time, I didn't, and I defrosted then in the refrigerator and just fed them to my fish. I noticed something was amiss because they couldn't swallow the pieces right away and were having trouble eating them. I went and looked at the bag....uncooked.

I have four older telescopes and two baby pearlscales. I'm guessing the telescopes will be okay, but what about the pearlscales? They are so sensitive.

PS- just to beat you to to the punch, these fish are not in the same tanks and I don't have an overstocking problem.

I did. And right after I panicked I saw one of my pearlscales devour a baby snail....so, if that doesn't reap havoc on his intestines, I don't think peas will

Any vegetable that has been frozen has been blanched first (cooked briefly in scalding wayer to stop enzymatic deterioration.) Your fish will be fine.
