There is a lake stocked with Grass Carp due to the overabundance of aquatic plants clogging the waterways, but there is also some goldfish in the lake, can these 2 species hybridize?

Also, do goldfish munch on decaying leaves? The lake is full of decaying oak leaves in fall/winter and frequently algae forms all over them. Also do goldfish enjoy eating bloodworms?

About the hybrid thing i don't know, it depends on the compatibility of the genetics.

i know goldfish eat decaying aquatic plants, so i assume they will eat decaying oak leaves as well, i don't know if they "enjoy" bloodworms, but i know that they do eat them.

Highly doubtful they will hybridize. Also your Grass Carp may be Triploid Grass Carp which are sterile and used to control vegetation.
