How often do you feed your fish?

I am curious how often you guys feed your finned friends? If you want, you can reply to the thread and tell us your schedule in addition to voting in the poll.

Usually once a day at night. About twice a week I'll give them a snack in the morning as well.

Once a day, but sometimes I'll skip a day.

When I leave for a weekend they don't get fed at all until I get back.

Once a day unless I'm feeling generous.

Once a day when I turn the lights on. I left for a week once and they didnt get fed the whole time but were fine. I'd probably do every other day but most likely I would forget if I was on a "feed day" or a "don't feed day". LOL!

I voted other. Once a day, skipping 1-2 days a week randomly for adults. Fry and grow out fish are fed 2-4x per day. Fish being conditioned for breeding get fed 1-2 times a day with as many live foods as we can throw in. Been doing that for 9+ years.

In the end, it always depends on what fish you're keeping, their age / growth, and your goals as a hobbiest.

I feed about once every other day, sometimes skipping two, sometimes everyday. Depends. My eel gets fed when I remember/can't remember the last time he got food lol.

That must be a terrible feeling for the eel....."Hmm......will I get fed today?"
Just kidding, that's very similar to my sister's betta feeding schedule
