I doubt that would bother the fish. They just might try to nibble on it.
We had feeder fish in our troughs, and they keep the algae down pretty well we had about 2-3 per trough. The horses barely even noticed they were there, and if a horse had a carrot/apple slice/treat in it's mouth and dropped it in the trough the fish would nibble on that to.
