    Hi guys,

    Am wondering what types of fresh vegetables are suitable to feed tetras, platies and gouramis?

    Am thinking of providing a change of diet w/ Garlic Guard.

    Have been feeding Hikari Micro Pellets for the past 7 months..

    Cant speak for the platies, but if you want a varied diet, think of frozen, freeze dried or live food of instead of veges for your tetras and gourami.

    I feed mine frozen daphnia, cyclops and bloodworms, plus freeze dried blackworms.

    Platies would munch on Zuchinni and likely other vegetables too. Gouramis and tetras are likely to ignore vegetables. I agree with the previous post on feeding frozen. Have to be careful of harmful bacteria/parasites from live food that you purchase from lfs.
