    The biggest thing to look at for your goldie growth is going to be their environment. Water quality - how often you change water, what are you keeping water parameters at, room to swim and grow, etc.

    In another thread you gave dimensions, which put this tank about 20-25 gallons I believe.

    That would be appropriate housing for just a single fancy type goldfish, not the 5 currently housed. You aren't going to have enough room at present to prevent stunting of their growth.

    So after addressing the housing issue, the feeding should be varied, but higher protein items such as bloodworms and brine shrimps should be more of a treat and not much of a regular feed. I know they will eat peas, and aquatic plants, but I don't think they are much for other veggies. I've not heard of feeding them poultry. So I'd stick with pellets as the main staple food. Perhaps once a week or so do worms or brine shrimps one day and peas another day.
