Preparing Diets for Fish
Fish eat different kinds of foods depending on what they naturally eat in the wild. They are either herbivores, meat-eaters or both. Commercial diets are made for the different species diets, but you may want to feed more than just flakes to your fish.
- Feed the appropriate for your species of fish
- Feed quality with Vitamins
- Feed twice a day in a quantity that can be consumed within 3-5 minutes
- Avoid overfeeding
- Feed supplements and trace elements
Fish that are fed in this manner are hardier, need less medication, have enhanced colors and are more active.
