Post water change feeding habits?

FuryX

HI everyone! Not sure if this is in under the right section but I have heard that after a water change you should wait to feed your fish so good bacteria can reform in your tank. If this is true how long should I wait? Thanks!

I never heard of this before? Your bacteria lives in your filter and substrate. Doing a water change shouldn't effect that, unless you're doing a complete water change and changing out the filter which you shouldn't do unless it's an emergency.

I agree that's a new one to me too.

I don't think there is much correlation between feeding, WC's and beneficial bacteria.

If I know I'm gonna do a WC in late afternoon or evening, I will feed once in the morning, maybe a little extra. No reason though to wait to feed after a WC as far as I know.

I feed while the hose is filling my tank.
