    How much food do I feed my 5 mollies and how may times a day? I own flake food.

    How ever much they'll eat in 1-2 minutes once a day I'd say. You'll want to fast once a week and feed them a pea the day after though.

    Hello Moll...

    Mollies require a lot of vegetable type foods. Check the pet store for vegetable flakes, freeze dried or you can feed crushed fresh vegetables. Minced garlic is a favorite. You can get it at the grocery stores in small glass jars. Just make sure you get the brand with no added ingredients, just garlic and water. Add algae wafers and pellets for a good variety.

    You can feed a little once or twice daily.

    These fish require a lot of care and aren't recommended for first timers. Hopefully, you have a larger tank and are a water change fanatic.
