Goldfish love fresh fruits. I have seen people them feed lemons, oranges, kiwi and peaches. Turns into a little feeding frenzy.

We give our goldfishes oranges and apples. Never heard of lemons though.
Can fish taste sour? Would be funny to see a goldy all puckered-up lol.

Yep ours keeps slices of oranges and lemons in there most of the time, its cool seeing how much they enjoy them. :)

I feed mine orange slices wired to a rock so it dosent just float around the tank, and the goldfish can get peices of it easier. I also dont leave it in toe tank for more than a few hours because I once left it in there over night, and the water was cloudy in the morning.

If you think it would be funny to see a goldfish puckered up, wonder what my blood parrots would look like.

At Petsmart we only feed the goldfish section orange slices, and only for a couple hours, usually 4 hours. I think lemon would definitely through off your ph!! But they sure do love those oranges :)
