Full Version: Is Tofu Good For Goldfish?
RafflesGold Forums > Discussion Area > Fancy Goldfish
GF Lover
Some say tofu is good for goldfish while others say that the calcium sulphite used to gel soya milk to tofu inhibit the goldfish's growth. Any comments?
CyberET
why do some say tofu is good?
what do u feel yourself?
GF Lover
Tofu good for human, therefore must be good for goldfish. My goldfish loves it.
CyberET
goldfish do not have the same digestive system as humans

How are they different? Are you saying that tofu is not good for goldfish. If so why?
CyberET
Goldfish do not have true stomachs, so they cannot hold large pieces of food internally. They also lack an "acid bath" — characteristic of animals with stomachs — for digesting food. Rather, they have long, folded, alkaline intestinal tracts where enzymes digest food matter all along the winding intestinal path. In other words, as with their ingestion mechanisms, the digestive tracts of the goldfish are designed for fairly continuous processing of small amounts of diverse food types.
GF Lover
Thanks for the insight. But still do not answer my query on whether tofu is good or bad for goldfish.
CyberET
I'm not using it, but since you are using it, what benefits does it provide, other than your goldfish loves it?
GF Lover
I heard it from the guy who used to have a goldfish shop in Specialist Center and also the guy who owns the goldfish shop in Namly Pl. Both claims to import ranchu from Japan and both claims that it is good for goldfish. Just curious to find out from the rest their experiences.

Thais use tofu too...

Using tofu for their fish is a practice of thai breeder. Jap breeders NEVER use it for goldfish.

hmmm.... weird reccommendation they have, given that they are selling jap fish.

That's is my kind of putting up a case, however, I believe the unconclusiveness is simply, all goldfish like human are different.

Honestly, I don't think it can possibly do any good.

http://www.soyfoods.com/nutrition/tofu.html

This is the composition breakdown.

What I'm concern is the sugar content. My point is that should not be in Goldfish diet.

If you buy Cyber's arguement here is a list of human food chart

http://www.essense-of-life.com/info/foodchart.htm

Now onto the idea of the acidic stomach that Goldfish lacks. If you notice under the acidic food, wheat-germ. Unless the Hikari wheat-germ feed is able to reverse that. I'm really not sure if that is the limitation to the type of feed.

I remember someone saying "Goldfish are pigs in water"

So I believe they are going to love it.

I was just looking at the ingredient list on the Hikari Lionhead, soyabean protein is one of the ingredient listed. Tofu is made from soyabean right?

There is a major difference from Soyabean Protein extracted in the Lionhead and tofu. Just like cholesterol it can be broken down, so don't assume it to be the same especially they are in different form.
GF Lover
Thanks for the many insight. I am afraid I am getting more blurr already. Actually I just ask if tofu is good or not good for goldfish.

Appreciate the many response but really very blurrrr!!!!!!!

Since already so blur, just for information, can anyone tell the difference between soyabean and soyabean protein. Why not protein from fish etc but why from soyabean.
dragonhart
hi,
i learnt fr HOR that feeding tofu will build up bulk in goldfish coz it contains a lot of protein (>50%). high protein stuff like some bros are using such as market prawn, shrimps, beef heart, king lobster roe.... etc also help to enhance the wen/headgrowth. i am also experimenting with tofu , fed them once a day. i believe it is a clean source of protein. still don't dare to try market prawn or beef heart...dirty the water leh.

Are you really blur about soyabean and soyabean protein? One is the source and the other is the extract.

As for using tofu as the source to beef up the protein, as in my link earlier, protein in tofu is about 15%, Lionhead is 46%. If the argument that Goldfish can consume more tofu than lionhead pellets, fine ... I'm not sure about that.

The thing with using raw food is bacteria especially hot season like now, food can turn bad very quickly.

Last time I used to work out in the gym and i took this. solid ah.... I have some left-overs which i intend to incorporate into my goldfish diet.

What's tofu? so out-dated... where got body builder eat tofu one hmm.gif

Some how my ranchus prefer tofu to Hikari Lionhead pellets. When the two are put into the tub, they go for the tofu first. If they eat the pellets, they will spit it out and when they take the tofu, they will not. Can anyone give me the reason.

Oh I now remember that Japan Ranchu Palace selling Japanese ranchu from many famous breeders are also recommending tofu. The boss says that the Japanese Breeders are feeding tofu to their ranchu. Why some of you do not agree that the Japanese feed their ranchu tofu?

So far my count is three LFS selling Japanese ranchu says that the Japanese are feeding tofu to their ranchu.

Oh one more thing. I went to Straits Aquarium today. Saw 4 pieces of very beautiful ranchu with excellent buffalohead. The owner keeps the ranchu inside. He told me that it is safer to keep it inside. Must be really special. Selling for $200/- each. Has anyone seen it. Any comments?

Does anyone have LFS to recommend that sells genuine Japanese ranchu. Been to all those places recommended by Ozeki Club.

Wah lau... I thought the explanations offered by the bros here are very detailed liao. First they tell you Jap breeders don't practise feeding tofu. Then explain why goldfish cannot take in the benefits of tofu (for human) because of their intestinal structure. Do you know if you feed banana, your goldfish will eat too?

As I see, bros here spent their time and effort offering you answers and proofs. If you INSIST that Tofu is good for your ranchu, then pls go ahead and feed tofu to your fishes. To proof these ppl who talked you against feeding tofu wrong, you can always post a "before and after feeding tofu" thread after feeding your GFs pure tofu for one yr. No point asking the forumers here for opinions if you already reached a conclusion and insisting on it, and since you cannot accept other ppl's explanations anymore. The bros are telling you GFs won't benefit from it, and you're still stressing your "my goldfish love tofu" point.

If you cannot accept opinions (even with proof), then pls don't ask for opinions in the first place. It is wasting precious time.

PS: Do you see on the Ozeki Club listing JRP as a recommended LFS? I dunno.

hi goldfish lover,
i fed my thai ranchus with egg tofu for 1 wk already, the wen seem to have grown. i see the little bumps on the wen become more obvious and well defined. think about it, we are getting the nice ranchus from the breeders who know what to feed the ranchus to make them nice. whether is japanese or thai breeders, they use tofu to build up bulk and enhance the wen. Anyway , for those who are not convinced, just try it on a ranchu and see the difference yourself. imagine the breeders and some hobbyist are feeding their beloved ranchu beef heart, market prawns, maggots from dead rats (heard fr a bro who visited thai farm)..etc, tofu doesn't seem dirty..nothing lah...
btw i visited the straits aquarium, those few buffalohead inside the glass are not so nice. the back is not very smooth. those in fibreglass tanks going for $160 are nicer.

Wah. One week only and you can already see the difference ah! Wah... you good good_very.gif

Then quick! Change the goldfish diet to PURELY tofu. Maybe if you feed for your ranchu with tofu for long enough, they will become champion grade ranchu with extraordinary wens. There is still some time to the next local ranchu competition. So I see you there with your champ. When you go up the stage to collect your trophy, you can shout to the mic proudly with thumbs up, "I FEED MY RANCHUS WITH TOFU!!" clap.gif






I will confirm clap the loudest... confirmed clap.gif













PS: But I still won't feed my ranchus with tofu

Thanks Dragonhart for your comments. I bought 2 pcs from the fibre tank and brought it home to keep it together with my other ranchus. I found that the penduncle of those 2 ranchu to be very thin and also the body to be much shorter as compared to those I bought from the Namly shop. The owner of Straits was very frank by telling me that his ranchu are Thai bred.

On the issue of tofu, the first person that I heard feeding tofu is Bertie from Macho Ranchu. He told was the first person to tell me that the Japanese feed their ranchu tofu. I did not keep any ranchu then. Just went there to buy fish food from him. What happen to the shop?

Do you think that I am wasting your board space and time? What does the other think? Just because you do not believe in tofu does not mean that it is not good. Even if the Jap do not feed their ranchu tofu and the Thais do, does not necessary mean that it is no good.

Japan has more than 50,000 ranchu breeders (according to Pat). How many person did you get the information from?

In this forum, we share our views. Good or bad, right or wrong is up to the individual. We have to learn from each other and experiment it ourselves. If anyone do not accept your view (even if you are an expert) does that give you a right to "thumb them down". If you own this web site then you can let me know and I will gracefull leave this forum.
square_guy
I said you are wasting our time as
1. CyberET already told you that the digestive system of a goldfish is different from humans.
2. Since they are different, food which is good for humans may not be good for goldfish. The onus is on you to proof that it is good.
3. You have not response to the question "why is it good", other then by stating that the Thais use it and LFS reccomend it.

The simple fact that certain people use it is NOT a good reason despite what you might think. There is clear-cut scientific basis for saying that tofu isn't good, if you think that is NOT good enough, be my guest.

Which is why I suggest you to use whey protein instead. Why stop half-way? Must go all the way to the extreme.

Fortunately I dun own this board, so I can be politically incorrect and speak my mind. biggrin.gif

btw, if there is no scientific basis to support your thoughts that tofu is good, you can always show us your fish. Please convince us that a diet comprising mainly of tofu can give you good results.

Now, tell me something. You mentioned specifically that HOR and the LFS at Namly reccomended feeding tofu. You also mentioned that you went to the LFS reccomended on the Ozeki website. Did these LFS reccomend tofu too? I am really curious about this...
GF Lover
I have never mentioned that HOR recommends tofu I only mentioned the following LFS

1. Macho ranchu - at Specialist Ctr
2. My Fish Shop - at Namly Pl
3. JRP - at North Bridge Rd.
leogon
IMHO...

A lot of times, various feeds are used by fish breeders/farmers not because they are the best food for the fish but rather they do it for economic reasons. Can you imagine the amount of money needed if all their fish were fed with Hikari/Chroma/Tetrabits etc? The ranchu will cost $$$$$!
So, for hobbyists with just a few fish, maybe we shouldn't just blindly adopt what they do...

heehee, i am the ONE who said HOR recommends tofu...btw not the tofu u buy in market. it is the EGG tofu. like i mentioned earlier: why don't buy a pc of egg tofu and try it on a no-so well like ranchu... maybe u will love it 1 wk later.. so far, i am only experimenting with tofu. i will continue to use it if i find that it is good for my ranchu. Not become someone recommends it. Even if someone recommends something good, but it is not work , then i will not use it. not everything is suitable for everyone mah.
anyway, i use tofu as a supplement (once a day, maybe 1/4 of a meal) to my ranchu's diet of bloodworms, hikari lionhead pellets, duckweed etc. btw i believe in a varied diet for healthy ranchu. dun go to the extreme of feeding ranchu exclusively on tofu. i don't think the breeders do that, they also use it as a supplement.
just try it yourself and stop arguing. everyone has their own way of keeping ranchus. As long as the ranchu grow well and healthy, why bother with what other people say.
talking about food and supplements, there are a lot of controversies on our food(human), let alone fish food. no need to argue lah, just like everyone has their preference for different kind of food. we need not follow or condemn them, we should just graciously respect their choice.
btw i stop using green water for my main tank, as i could not see the ranchu. can't check if they are healthy. Added Oceanfree greenaway, heehee. see whether color would fade or wen shrunk. so far so good. see how.

ok i'm not going to insist that tofu is bad. in fact i'll welcome discussion as to why it is good. but like i said, hearing from LFS is not enough. there must be something concrete (from long term experience, or from some science).

I wonder what is there that makes it better than Lionhead pellets. Could it be calcium content? Egg Tofu is not cheaper than Lionhead pellets.

Seriously Dragonhart and GFlover, please do record down the growth since you guys already started with the experiment.

I think 1 wk to see the difference, that is a little quick to draw any conclusion in this sense food vs growth. Why don't we compare notes 3 wks later?

I do not know how to compare if the ranchu are better or not after 3 weeks of feeding tofu, unless I have so many ranchus that I can split them up into 2 groups.

What really puzzle me most and the reason for me to post this thread is that the owner of Macho Ranchu told me so when I bought a packet of goldfish food that he packed it himself. When I as him why is his pellets different from those sold in the LFS, he told me that those are"junk food". His is the good stuff that is made by the Japanese breeders. He told me that his contain tofu that the Japanese breeder use to feed their goldfish. Unless he is lying or his ranchu are from Thailand (easily that was more than 10 years ago).

I think let's not use strong words like "lying" here.

As for the comparison, NO I'm not suggesting that you should split your goldfish to get a before and after effect. Why don't just document the growth like take pictures and take measurement.

As for the food that "he packed it himself", care show us a picture. If it is pellets, I'm quite sure it is not manufactured by him.

Mopre than 10 years ago, the food and the goldfish long gone already. The food is in pellet form and was selling for $10/- a pack. On the tofu trial, I think I am not up to it as I am only keeping the goldfish for my own enjoyment and not competition etc. No difference if it grows better with tofu or Hikari etc.

I was just asking because so many LFS recomends it. I am new to Japanese ranchu.

ya, me too. to verify if tofu's effect, i would need to feed my beloved ranchu with only tofu(too rule out effects of other foods---quite cruel right?). btw to be scientific, i would have to start with 2 identical ranchu and compare the differences. heehee , not quite possible right? growth and wen development also depend on other factors such as genes. quite hard if u want to prove it. i just try it to see if there's any effects. frankly speaking , feed tofu is a bit troublesome. how about those bros feeding beef heart? dirty man... i would rather do experiements on breeding.

I have tried with two types of tofu. The egg and non-egg type, both jap imports, about 7.9g protein. The egg mess up the water a bit more so I don't recommend using that for "soup". smile.gif I can't confirm or deny the benefits of tofu with any authority, but my fish seem to like it more than blood worm. All I can say is that they like it, but I don't know if it is good for them.

Hi guys-

I make a paste food which is not for staple use but for "starting" a fish, like in quarantine or coming out of winter. In it I put tofu and shrimp, and peas and spinach. All in a blender and then with gelatin.

Green peas have never helped with buoyancy here either. I don't think I've ever "fixed" a fish. There is also conflict about spinach. But, please tell me the reasons for not using tofu.

I just went back and searched for "tofu" "toufu" "tou fu" and "soy curd" in all forums and found nothing. Pheew! Didn't want you guys to think I was lazy and couldn't find my own answers but this is a new feeding tidbit, one I've never heard before and would like to understand.

Hi Mickey,

There was a discussion on tofu here:

http://www.rafflesgold.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=832

Please pay special attention to Jimmy's findings... The gist is, tofu is being eaten and pass out without the good nutrients absorbed, due to the digestive system of goldfish.

And please understand the equation:

(My goldfishes like IT) ≠ (IT is good for my goldfishes)
gohks
I think egg tofu is good good.gif . I remember in my younger day (1960 - 1970's) my granny used to feed anything to the goldfish, e.g. bread, live worms, flour mixed with egg (at that time there isn't so many choices of food, I can't recalled seeing any pellets or dried preserved food) and suprisingly the goldfish looks them hardy and nice. I think the main ingredient that promote the health is the protein riched egg. So, I assumed when tofu comes with egg (those commercial for human comsumption) should be good (though I have never tried).

At that time fishes are also kept in natural green water (which we tried very hard to clear, without knowing their benefits blush.gif , as filtration were no good) in cememted outdoor tank and this could also be one of the factor that promote the growth and health. smile.gif

I tot this myth has been answered during the previous YuHua show ???? This question had been thrown out to the Thai breeder and was well answered by them.

Ok, maybe can be answered by them again during the upcoming show.
