Do you think I overfeed my fish? I feed them 2 times a day everyday.

Most of my fish get fed once every other day.

One of them gets fed daily because he becomes very aggressive if he's hungry.

One of them gets fed small portions twice daily.

Adult fish usually every other day. Fry get fed twice a day with two fasting days a week.

Once a day or every other day, depending on my mood. They're all getting fat anyway, little pigs...

Yea I've heard once daily but the directions on the container says twice daily. I dont want to over feed but I don't want them starved. :/

Why a break day when feeding?

Hi, I'm new to keeping fish and learning a lot on here.

I'm curious, why is it that quite a few people here take a break from feeding their fish one day a week?

To let their digestive systems clear, reduce waste, and because adult fish usually don't need to eat every day. Fish can get fat too.

Once a day, sometimes every other day. When on vacation, they go on a diet.

I feed my fish twice a day , every day. I doubt if a fish goes without eating in the wild. I have never had issues doing it that way. Alison

Once a day. But sometimes I skip a day.
