    I have a massive spill over of radishes, and i wont be able to eat them all myself so i can prep and freeze them if i want them for my shrimp. Can they eat them? Are there any veggies i should stay away from feeding them?

    Blanched spinach. Spinach has calcium in it. I would not feed radishes to shrimp.

    I feed then kale, mushrooms, zuchini, cucumber, and carrots as a main source of food. Kale i think is higher calcium than spinach lol. Also they have a small piece of cuttlefish bone to chew on so to speak lol. I guess ill find a better use for those radishes thanks

    Why not? I see no reason not to feed radish.

    I know alot of mammals have issues with them, specially the smaller ones like rabits. I think radishes have a bit of a kick and i didnt know if it would foul my water or kill my shimp lol

    That was my thought as well genocidex. Maybe I'm being over concerned, but I'd find out for sure before I'd feed them any radishes with a kick. And you're right about kale having more calcium than spinach...lol..didn't think about that.

    Each to his own I suppose. When looking at the breakdown of a radish I don't see anything offending.

    "The bulb of the radish is usually eaten raw, although tougher specimens can be steamed. The raw flesh has a crisp texture and a pungent, peppery flavor, caused by glucosinolates and the enzyme myrosinase which combine when chewed to form allyl isothiocyanates, also present in mustard, horseradish, and wasabi."

    Well, this is the part that bothers me. Again, maybe I'm worried about nothing. But I'd certainly want to talk with someone that had feed radishes to RCS before to see what kind of experience they had. TD, if you've feed radishes before to RCS and they suffered no ill effects, you should just say so.

    Went out for a bit yesterday and there was radish on the salad bar. The shrimp aren't very keen on it but they are eating it.
