Overfeeding Is The Most Common Mistake Fish Owners Make When Feeding Their Aquarium Fish

Overfeeding is the most common mistake fish owners make when feeding their aquarium fish. Overfeeding clogs the filter. It breaks down toxins that are harmful to fish. Fish are very opportunistic and will eat whenever they have a chance. Fish quickly learn who brings food to the tank. They jump at the chance to be fed. The correct frequency of feeding will vary based on the fish species. Most fish require 16 to 24 hours to digest the food they eat. A once-a-day feeding is quite sufficient. Some owners like to feed their fish very lightly twice a day. Overfed fish may become obese and bloated. Small amounts of good nutritional food are much better for your fish than large amounts of cheap food. Research fish species to determine which type of food is appropriate for the fish you keep. Some fish foods are specific to species, such as algae wafers. . . .
