Try sprinkling a small amount of food in the fish's tank and watch

How many times should you feed your fish daily

It was like looking down into the top of an aquarium at feeding time, with fish darting in all directions. The fish were fighting one another for my baitfish. Several times, I watched the bright colors of a dorado strike at my bait only to lose out to a quicker striking tuna. The tuna would then occupy a minute or two of my time with an exhausting fight.
Excessive overfeeding pollutes the aquarium and is a primary cause of fish loss. For most fish, it is advisable to feed small amounts several times daily.

This will also depend on the fish's breed and size. Most fish only require a once-a-day feeding, though some people like to split it into two smaller feedings. Consult your veterinarian or the fish experts at your local aquarium to learn about the daily requirements for your particular breed. But be aware that a fish will eat even when it's not hungry. So there is no point feeding your water-bound pet three times a day, when once a day is sufficient.

In natural outdoor habitat, the Black Moor doesn’t do so great feeding because of it’s poor eye-sight. It is tough to find food when you can’t see that great. Just another reason why these fish thrive in aquarium habitats where the food can be handed right in front of them by their generous owners. They are sometimes fish but do best in aquariums.Aquarium Fish Feeding frequency is the subject today. How often should you feed your fish? Overfeeding in your fish tank can cause a lot of problems, for the fish and for the aquarium balance.

I feed my fish once a day. You can feed more, but you are going to have to do more work. In a planted tank, fish can peck away at the plants as well. Feeding fish is fun, but don't overdo it. Don't ask me how to get rid of your algae if your are feeding 5 times a day ;)

You should feed your fish... Okay, this is where I can get in a lot of trouble because fish really do need to feed all day long. So, they would benefit from feeding two, three, or even four times a day - but very small feedings. Most people's schedule doesn't warrant that type of feeding. So, fish are usually okay with just being fed once a day. That's what most fish stores and most fish professionals would recommend simply because people tend to overfeed as well.

You could feed your fish one time a day. Feed them as much as they can eat in five minutes. What that means is you put a little bit of food in the tank. You could shut off the filter so the filter doesn't remove the fish food. And then if the fish eat all the food you could feed a little bit more. You do that up to five minutes and then stop.

I prefer to feed the fish again two to three times a day. It's just better on the fish's system. It's not as taxing on their gut. You don't just load them up with food for five minutes. Just give them one small pinch of food in the morning, once in the afternoon, and that's the best way for the tank and the best way for the fish.

But you can't overfeed. If you feed and you see leftover food, and you do that three times a day, you're going to really foul your water quickly. So don't overfeed.

And mix up the diet. It's very important to replicate the diet that the fish would eat in the wild. There are different types of fish out there. There are herbivorous fish. There are omnivorous fish. There are fish that just eat shrimp. There are fish that just eat algae - those are the herbivorous fish.

So you want to replicate because those fish need the vitamins associated with the types of food that they eat in the wild. When you buy the fish ask the people what types of food these fish need to eat. Typically you'd just do a well balanced diet.

Very rarely do you have a situation where the fish would be hurt from eating the wrong types of foods. One situation would be with African cichlids that only eat algae. If they eat too much protein they get bloated and they can actually die from it. It causes a lot of bacteria in their gut because they can't break down the foods.

For the most part, most tropical fish, even salt water fish, would benefit just from a wide variety of food. You can't go wrong with that.Join us every Saturday at 1:30 p.m, for our live fish feedings and informational demonstrations at our 34,000 gallon, freshwater, educational aquarium.
