Guppies and minnows are better for your turtle than goldfish. Goldfish are fatty, make a lot of waste in the tank, are more apt to contain parasites than other live food, and contain a substance that breaks down B vitamins. Feeding too frequently (creating an unbalanced diet) can cause a turtle to have neurological problems, and if the diet is not corrected can be fatal.
