HI there!

My 2 Mickey Mouse Platties LOVE to eat - I've heard so much mixed advice on how much to feed them. I've heard don't feed them every day, maybe every other day in order to keep the tanks ammonia down. My question: How often and how much is fair to feed them? I clean their tank once a week.

Thanks!

you could feed them 2 times a day to once every 2 days... vary there diet... alternate between flakes and frozen food like bloodworms... if your tank is cycled you don't need to worry about ammonia just keeping your nitrates down... if its uncycled you might want to feed them relatively often and do frequent water changes because you need the ammonia to cycle it

Not much I can add I do feed mine twice a day but I think that's more for my amusement than their needs. just make sure to get any food they don't eat out and do water changes of 25% every week.
