    Its a bit like figuring out what you would feed of any other food. You guesstimate and adjust based on results.

    Start small and see how the fish devour them. If introducing them for the first time, use like three peas and watch what happens. If the fish eat them all right away increase to 5 the next time you feed them peas. If they reject the peas, clean them out after 4 hours.
    It's trial and error.

    This was very interesting and helpful. I'm definitely going to have to consider including peas in my feeding regimen.

    I have a question: I'm considering adding otocinclus cats to my tank at some future point as I stock up, and I am of the understanding that they will absolutely require supplementation with fresh vegetable matter for good long-term care. The reading I've done mostly mentions cucumber, zucchini, and lettuce leaves but would peas be sufficient for otos?

    Thanks.

    Variety is the spice of life. Feed different veggies to keep them happy and healthy.

    You should NOT feed peas to bettas. This is what everyone on bettafish.com says. They say that it is not good for them.
    Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.

    While they should not be a staple food for fish, I found one post in their FAQ saying what you mentioned and several other posts suggesting they feed peas if a betta is constipated. Their concern seems to stem from the fact that bettas are considered carnivores. But even the pure carnivores such as cats are not harmed by occasional eating of vegetable matter(roughage), and in the case of constipation are benefited by doing so.

    Hello,
    I read of somebody that was feeding peas as a treat, something about boiling them and then removing the shell and dropping in the tank, they said their fish went crazy over them. Maybe I didn't do something right, just put 4 little peas in a coffee cup with water and microwaved them for a minute, then cooled with cold water, removed the skin and dropped them in the tank.
