Hello, Is it a good idea for me to feed my cornsnake goldfish?? He eats mice all the time with very tlittle tempting. I have heard of snakes eating fish so I am curious about feeding Edgar goldfish.

Goldfish won't hurt him. He may or may not want to eat it. He doesn't need it (they get a balanced enough diet just from mice, oddly enough), but you could give it a try if you want to experiment.

Tah tah.

Offered several of my cornsnakes 'junkfish' one time as a friend was dismantling her tank. They looked at me like I was nuts. Perceptive snakes but they sure never showed the slightest interest in the fish. Fish went to Fish Valhalla uneaten.
I would doubt it would eat fish, but even if it did, feeding fish has some drawbacks. Garters have to dosed for parasites more often that mammal eaters because of the large parasitic load of fish.

Ain't nothin' in the middle of the road but
yellow stripes and dead armadillos.
I would say NO. Goldfish are not a good source of nutrients for a corn snake.
