I used to have 3 little 10 gallons set up, and id Fill em with 100 of little goldfish, And wait like A week and THEN feed them to my P's. Patience is the Key Young Grasshopper, But was well worth it, Slimmed the chance of Disease.

Anything but Cyprinid fish (goldfish, koi, minnows, carps, danio's, barbs) are suitable as feeders, as long as they are 100% disease-free, in other words quarantained first, for at least 2 weeks.

The reason Cyprinids are unsuitable is because they contain certain growth-inhibiting hormones that can negatively influence your fish's growth and development. Problem is that the effects aren't immedeately visible, but once they are, it's too late.
The question is wheter you are willing to play Russian Roulette at the expense of your beloved fish....
