Silkworms and roaches. Both can be purchased online.

Many new goldies, if yours is new, refuse to eat because they’re stressed and stubborn. If your goldie doesn’t eat past day 10, see a vet to rule out parasites. The vet can teach you how to force feed if it’s needed. You should also review your tank size and setup to make sure you have everything adequate.

http://www.mulberryfarms.com/

They’re a pretty good website.

Warning about roaches: You’d better start off breeding them for a while if you get them and not feeding those suckers off right away. It’s expensive to only get a dozen or two, but they can breed very prolifically.

I noticed that you have two goldies. They’re separated, correct? Territorial disputes can sometimes lead to major stress.

Try waxworms


when all else fails, goldies cant help the sight of a fat little waxworm


they eat them right up


not too many though because waxworms are very fatty and not a good part of a healthy golden diet
