    I poured too much fish food into my tank.What should I do?Know I am so worried that my fish would get bloated.

    what size tank? What do you have in there? Try to scoop out what you can with a net and vacuum even more out with your water changer or turkey baste as much as you can out.

    I agree with @kallililly1973
    Personally I’d do a 50 percent water change today. Then, in order to keep ammonia down over the next week, you’ll probably want to do 20 percent water changes every other day. Also, if you’re super worried about bloating, skip the next feeding.

    Hi, how much was too much'?

    Your fish should not get bloated in one single overfeeding. But how much did you put in there? Did the hole cantainer fall in? If so, do a 50% water change, fill up the tank, do another 50% water change , save some tank water and rinse the filter cartridge, do the same thing as needed, and again tommarow.

    Or did you just double or triple the normal amount? then double or triple this weeks partial water changes.
