    Default Peas for plecos?

    I read peas are bad for fish's digestive systems longterm. Maybe it's because of all the fiber in peas, I'm not sure.

    I was considering making my own pleco food since I'm running low and also I have flakes that I just don't use. I was thinking of mashing up some greens and adding the flakes for vitamins and a bit of protein.

    My pleco babies love peas. But I only ever fed peas now and then because of what I read here. I could easily use zucchini, spinach and other veggies, but now I'm just curious, are peas bad for fish that are primarily herbivorous?

    For aquatic animals, the best veggies are aquatic based like algae. There's no real need to add peas. It's not going to make a dramatic difference in their health if you add or don't add it.

    I was searching for pleco food recipes, and came across one that uses mostly peas. I've already moved passed it because ofv the peas, but I just didn't know why they were bad longterm.

    So if I wanted to make my own food, would I need to grow algae or can you buy that kind of thing? Seaweed?

    Not saying I'm going to do that, too much of a hassle, I'm just curious ;)

    Dehydrated seaweed, spirulina, and chlorella would be the way to do it. Add in some dehydrated krill, mysis shrimp or other food in frozen form.

    I occasionally open a large can of french cut green beans, drain it, and dump into my 220. The silver dollars, cichlids, Synodontis and bristlenose all love them. Always cleaned up the next morning.

    Doesn't matter, the salt is in the water they're packed in. Drain the water and you get rid of nearly all the salt.
