FAQs About Goldfish Food

In the wild, goldfish are omnivores and will typically eat a variety of foods, including plants and even small critters. This means you have a lot of options when it comes to fish food for your goldfish. Petco offers many different food options, including goldfish food flakes, pellets, freeze-dried food and frozen food—which should be thawed before feeding it to your fish. Your goldfish food should include a good balance of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. And goldfish and koi need more carbohydrates than other freshwater fish, so it’s best to feed them foods specifically formulated for goldfish.

You may want to experiment with different types of goldfish food to find out which works best for you and your fish. Some pet parents prefer flakes over goldfish food pellets since pellets will typically sink to the bottom of the tank. Other pet parents like freeze-dried blood worms or even goldfish gel food. Observe your goldfish after starting a new food. A healthy goldfish will have good coloring and clear eyes. They should also be active and alert. And many enjoy a varied diet.

One of the great things about caring for goldfish is that they can eat many different types of food. In the wild, goldfish live in cold, slow-moving water and eat whatever they can find, which could include algae, insect eggs or even small insects themselves. They are omnivores. Fortunately, you don’t need to go hunting in your backyard for insect eggs. You can find plenty of goldfish food on Petco’s website. You’ll have plenty of options to choose from, including goldfish food flakes, goldfish pellets and more. No single option is better than the other. As long as you choose a reputable goldfish food brand, you’ll get well-balanced food that will meet the nutritional needs of your goldfish. From there, it comes down to which food you prefer to buy and which food your goldfish responds to the best. You may wish to try different goldfish foods or switch foods occasionally to give your goldfish a variety of options.
