    Hi everyone. Just a question on feeding. Many sites u read either say feed twice daily or once where the fish eat within 2 mins. I have 5 make guppies, a snail and 5 cherry shrimps in an 8 gallon tank and at the moment feed them once a day but don't feed them on a Saturday. I do vary their feeds. Any thoughts please...,

    Hello Mandy UK and Welcome to Fish Lore!

    I feed my fish once a day also with a varied diet. I think what you're doing is fine. Over feeding can lead to many different problems.

    Sounds good to me I feed adults once daily, fry etc. 3 times daily and once a month I give adults 2 days off with no food.

    Hello Smithgerry,

    I feed twice daily and give them a a day off without food every two weeks.

    But every time i get what I consider a relatively large pinch of flakes, wet them, and let them sink, my fish polish them off in less than 30 seconds. Hehe.
