Is Frozen Broccoli Safe For My Goldfish?

    Haven't got any fresh. Was thinking about boiling some frozen broccoli with a clove of garlic to give it that flavour. Is using frozen okay?
    Also, I don't wanna put the whole piece of broccoli in my tank. Just chop it up into pieces they can eat straight away?
    Thanks

    It should be just fine. I found my fish don't like frozen. They prefer fresh. But I don't have goldfish. I know they are little piggies lol

    Can't imagine any good reason to think it might not be fine as long as it's defrosted first.

    I feed my goldfish frozen broccoli all the time. I just boil it a little bit to make it softer. I also cut it into small, bite sized pieces to make it easier for the fish to eat. Your goldie will be just fine :)

    I boiled frozen broccoli with a garlic clove then crushed it all up together and gave them a quarter of a tea spoon. They LOVED it!

    Mine love frozen broccoli. I just boil it for about 3 mins so it's soft. Attach it to a "veggie clip" and they devour it. They especially like the tops.

    I also leave it whole on a clip... mine also love zucchini, bell peppers, cucumber, peas (deshelled), and seaweed.
