how much do i feed my fish?

Recommended Posts

Overfeeding them where they do not eat all the food can add to ammonia which the fish will produce as well. Ammonia is not good for your fish. Overfeeding will also give poor water conditions so you will need to do water changes more often. You will soon know the difference between a healthy fish and a overfed fish.

I over feed and over water change and over filter and overstock.

but I dont reccomend doing it if you are not experienced.

well apart from over filtering

"feed to breed" is my motto

size of a fishes eye ball in good quality pellet food

as many times a day as I can be bothered

water change before nitrates gets over 40ppm

and ya

they grow faster

but if you let nitrates get high OR you feed more in one go than ya filter bacteria can convert to nitrates

well then fish will grow slower

or die

Shouldn't you be changing a nappy or something DFF.

See if the fry get up to 12 feeds a day now.

Oh fatherhood...enjoy it my friend it is a great thing, also comes with being moody lack of sleep n red eyes. Somehow you would not change it for a thing but.

I agree with what DFF says above ^^
