Peas Question

    I just tried to feed my fish some peas and they would nibble them while they where sinking and when they finally hit the gravel they wouldn't eat them. Is something wrong or is this normal?

    Also, is it normal for the peas to have bubbles coming out of them when you put them in the water?

    Where they thawed frozen, shelled and cut up into tiny bits?

  3. Jake the FishValued MemberMember

    When you say shelled does this mean with the shell on?

    with it peeled off
  5. Jake the FishValued MemberMember

    I don't recall bubbles coming out of them. I cut mine into teeny tiny bits.
    They sink quickly. If my fish don't get them going down, they usually find them later.

    Just to clarify....What should be used is a thawed, frozen pea with the skin removed, cut into tiny pieces about the size of one of the fishes eyes. No canned peas as they probably contain salt in most cases. It may take a time or two before the fish realize it's food.

    thawed, frozen pea? i'm confused lol
    i'm assuming you mean you buy them frozen and then you thaw them out?
  9. LucyModeratorModerator Member

    Yes, that's right. Sorry for the confusion :)

    Sorry for a stupid question, but what does "thawed" mean? I tried but I still don't understand it properly... =/

    Hi Welcome to FishLore :)
    Thawed means to unfreeze.

    you can take one out of the freezer and leave it for a few minutes, it will thaw. (Or you could microwave it, I'm guessing 1 pea would take about 1-2 seconds only)
