Growing out - 2-3 very small amount, about what can eat in under 30 seconds

Once grown at random times and always alternating between different foods and different flakes (have about 15 different kinds of foods some homemade or blended)

Just get a feel for it after a couple decades of watching em lol, high pace fast current like a little more often in smaller amounts, things such as plecos enjoy a 3 night on 1 night off (for an 18 inch) as long as use foods that aren't very rich in proteins and high in fiber

Blah blah blah, wutever keeps em satisfied and not too fat, a fit fish is a happy fish
Variation is the key in small amount, most fish graze on low nutrition items with a bigger meal every once in a while (AKA treats) is a good place to start, you could write a series of books on the subject 0.o which is close to what I'm doing so I'm gonna stop...... Sorry for the long post :p

I generally feed every other or every third day. About once a week, I soak the food in a combo of garlic guard and vita-chem. Frozen mysis shrimp or plankton is a once a week treat.

Adults twice a day at least, fry tanks 3 or more depending what they are and when I'm getting ready to ship other than fry most everyone gets fasted since its not nice to feed the neighbors and not them

My angel community is fed 2x daily. My betta communmity is fed twice daily except on fasting days once a week. Shrimp are fed when their algae wafers are gone. Guppy adults are fed 2x daily, but fry are fed 4x daily.
