You can leave them on, I do because it gives each fish( no matter what swimming level) an equal amount of food. That's just for me.

My wp40 has a 10 minute feed button that shuts it off. I usually dump the food right into my return pump chamber of my refugium so its dispersed evenly. Once the apex controller is purchased and installed, ill have it setup to shut down everything

I heard about those powerheads, they seem pretty cool for the price.

Anyone know how long a fish can go without food?

Get one.. They are amazing!! As for duration of time without eating, its really dependent on the fish and circumstances. They are opportunistic eaters in the wild so they are used to going days without eating

I had a cardinal that never ate and he lasted 9 days so would say about 6-8 days but for tangs and big fish would think a lot less

Thanks, this guy is probably 1.25", so he's pretty tiny. He's still alive today, so that's good lol

Well, I've pretty much lost all hope. She didn't eat today, but she's acting completely normal now. She's spending most of her time in the open.

I haven't had very good luck with dwarf angels, my last one never started eating and this one stopped I guess there's still a chance, but any day now she'll probably be dead when I wake up.
