Hey, sorry to be that person. But its worth mwntioning if you didn't know.

Goldies make terrible feeders not only due to all the diseases they carry (and being terribly non-nutritious as they are fed a poor diet) but also contain high levels of thiaminase, which inhibit B1 levels in the body (B1 deficiency).

If you haven't already, I'd encourage you to breed your own feeders (convicts, swordtails or mollies come to mind) or consider switching him over to dead/frozen foods

Thank you for the tip I'm in the process right now of setting up a feeder breeding area, to swap him from those but currently it's much cheaper to feed him those than the other options I have at hand
