I think you can but check on the label to see if there is any chemicals or preservatives but if there isn’t I think you can ( don’t completely take my word I don’t now for sure)

I never offered tuna from a can. I would avoid if it's in oil.

I have offered Fancy Feast cat treats. They have a type that is single ingredient and come in single use pouches. It's probably a little too much for one tank. I split one pack between two tanks. They come in chicken, tuna, and salmon. It's identical to canned tuna.

Urgh, are there any other single-ingredient fishes you know of? Single use pouches just kill me (so much plastic, suffocate me now plz) Also, for th canned tuna, I don't know if its oil that it's in. I have to drain the can, but it looks like some sort of juice that came from the fish. Very cloudy and doesn't look like oil, although there is probably oil product in there.

If your grocery stores offer fresh fish you have tons of options. As long as it's just fish and not seasoned or anything. You can get as much or as little as you want. I would cook all fish before offering.

Xenocrab has a good story about shrimp at the grocery store!

I do canned fish all the time, usually just give them the can to pick clean rather than mess around with dishing it up. The kind in oil is their favorite! I do a lot of mackeral and sardines, mostly because I'm not a huge tuna fan unless it's skipjack, and that's been hard to find lately.
