TIPS FROM GUPPY, THE FISH GUY - DON'T OVERFEED


Food manufacturers recommend feeding three times per day, but if you have a new tank, this is often excessive.


If you are watching your water quality or stocking a new tank, one feed per day is usually enough. Only once you have a full quota of fish and your tank has been running trouble-free for a few months, should you increase the feeding, and even then feed little and often.


How much is a pinch?


Good question, because depending on the size of your fingers and the type of food you are feeding, amounts will be vastly different. Ask your retailer to demonstrate how much they feed to each of their fish, so you get a more accurate idea.


Hope this helps.
