How do you know if you feed enough/too much?
I feed my fish once a day (because of my schedule), usually end of the afternoon of in the evening.
I drop one aglae wafer (hikari) and one freeze dried tablet (nutrafin) or 4-5 sinking shrimp pellet (nutrafin) for the 4 bottom feeders. I give 2-3 pinches of complete flake food (nutrafin) and/or freeze dried bloodworms for the guppies and tetras (I wait between the pinches for most of it to be eaten before putting more). I don't stop the filter while feeding because I would probably forget to turn it back on. Besides, the filter sinks some food that the fast tetras like to catch. I don't put anything in particular for the snail as it seem to be feeding on the piece of wood (I've tried lettuce, snowpea and zucchini and none were touched).
I think I might be underfeeding because all my fish seem to be starving! They haven't grown much in the few months I've had them. The guppies and tetras rush to the top as soon as I approach the tank. The corys swim fast back and forth as soon as they know the pellets are there. But I think I might be overfeeding, because there is a lot of gunk in the gravel when I do my weekly pwc
Does it sound like I feed enough or too much?
Thanks for you comments.
