your aquariums plants as the commons, comets and shubunkins.  I have two
planted tanks with fancy goldfish, and they will take bits of leaf that are
floating around the tank in their mouths, but spit it out in disgust lol!
They do dearly love my ramshorn snail babies and eggs, though, so I have to
raise a few ramshorns in a tank with tropicals :-)
