feeding fish peas

I've been advised that giving fish shelled peas can help constipation, is it a good idea to add peas to their diet anyway to prevent constipation? (eg feed them peas once a week). They normally get fed flakes and sinking pellets, there is also a live plant in the tank.

What sort of fish have you got? Some prefer them more than others. :)
Don't let your mind wander. It's too small to be let out on its own.

I don't think it would hurt them. I've never kept any of those fish apart from cories, though, so you may want to wait for other responses. :)

They will love them. Save a few peas from your dinner (you only need 3 or 4 depending on fish numbers. A little pea goes a long way :wink: ) and just pop them out of the skin and drop them in the tank. The fish can't digest the skin.
