    I've used lettuce before to feed my foxy but you cant freeze lettuce. I dont know of other veggies that fish will eat. Why not use nori

    i used peas in the past to tide difficult feeders (moorish) over untill they ate, but since i have discovered ocean nutrition i stick to a variety of what they have to offer as it is largley made of ingriedients found in the fishes natural enviroment..
