Default Laxatives?

No, Bop isn't constipated or anything but I was thinking about that the other day. Are there any feeder fish that are good laxatives for axies to prevent constipation? I've heard Minnows are a good "once in a while" option?

With my other tanks I usually give my fish pea's or part of a cucumber to help prevent bloat,and watching a betta swim around with part of a pea sticking out of his mouth is just too funny.

When my vet was trouble shooting one of my sick sals he thought she might be constipated and recommended wax worms dipped in olive oil. You could dip a piece of nightcrawler in oil as well or whatever you normally feed.
