"Please do not feed these snakes goldfish! They contain an enzyme called thiaminase that blocks a snake's absorbtion of vitamin b1 (thiamine). Eventually after a long period of eating goldfish a snake WILL die of thiamine deficiency. It could take months, or even years, but goldfish in the diet WILL shorten the lifespan of a snake considerably. Catfish, smelt, rosy reds and carp also contain thiaminase and should not be fed. You can safely feed guppies, platies, mollies, or strips of salmon, tilapia, or trout from the grocery store with a calcium supplement added. You can also wean fish eating snakes onto a diet of rodents by scenting the dead mouse with the fish it likes to eat. Eating rodents is safe for them and will even reduce the amount of smelly runny poops! For more information, visit thamnophis . com"
