How much can you not feed the fish in the aquarium

maintenance, care, compatibility

Any pets – whether cats, hamsters, parrots or aquarium fish – unwittingly tied the owners to the house. After all, they need constant care – feeding, treatment, caress and so on.

Therefore, every time when for some reason the owners have to leave the house even just for a few days, many people fall into a real panic – who will take care of their favorites?

Of course, aquarists are no exception. They are also very worried about how much you can not feed the fish.

After all, no one wants to go home and see the pets that have popped up abdomen.

Definitely answer this question is quite difficult.

The fact is that different fish have different needs in feed. The more active they are, the more often and denser they need to eat.

For example, barbs – these small comets in an aquarium – should eat more often and get more calories. A leisurely cockerel or catfish needs a much smaller amount of food. It also depends on the fatness of the fish.

If they are overweight (yes, in fish it is the same as in any animals), then they will be able to stretch longer. But in any case, if you need to leave home for five to seven days, you can not worry about their pets.

If you live fish that lead a very quiet, inconspicuous and unhurried lifestyle, they can easily stretch for a couple of weeks.

True, after returning it is better not to feed them with dry feed, preferring live ones. And in general, after the diet it is worth gradually increasing portions so that the fish do not eat.

Of course, the ideal solution to this problem would be to ask the neighbors to help out – to say what and how many times to feed aquarium fish, to explain when it is necessary to turn on and off the lighting and quietly go on business. But if there is no such possibility, you can simply feed the fish more tightly, turn on the compressor and leave the house.

However, this applies only to adult fish.

The fry, alas, are not able to stretch even five days without food. Therefore, planning a trip should be careful not to risk the health and life of their pets.

FEEDING GOLDEN FISHES

AS? WHAT AND HOW MUCH?

Goldfish – extremely playful, cheerful and voracious creatures. They quickly get used to the person of their breadwinner, and as they approach the aquarium, they jump out of the water like piranhas with hungry eyes. This behavior of your waterfowl pets can be repeated 10 times a day, but this does not mean that the goldfish are hungry all this time.

This is just a conditioned reflex. It is necessary to feed your pets 1-2 times a day with one pinch of dry food. This is quite enough for their normal growth and development.

If you feed more often, the fish will behave very sluggish, in addition their life expectancy will be reduced.

Despite the fact that the process of feeding goldfish can bring you a lot of pleasure – do not abuse it. In fish, there is no sense of saturation. Do not forget about it.

So do not overdo it. And your pets will long please your eyes and soothe raging thoughts.
And now from the lyrics, to the point!

Goldfish need a balanced diet. Their diet should include both live food – bloodworm, artemia, daphnia, rotifers and other food: dry and especially vegetable.

If we talk about proportions, then in my opinion for goldfish, this proportion looks like 40% live, dry and 60% vegetable food.

Live food, adore all the fish and gold is no exception. When keeping Zolotuh in an aquarium, it is better to use frozen live food, as they are safer than full-scale.

Dry feed – a universal remedy for feeding any fish. Manufacturers of aquarium feed took care of the usefulness of the diet.

Therefore, if you wake up to feed goldfish only with such food, then this will be quite enough for their well-being. But if you want to feed your goldfish to be elite))).

It is necessary to introduce vegetable feed and only natural.

How is this achieved ?! Yes, very simple.

You need to breed Leopard or Riccia, Well, it is very golden love this aquarium vegetation.

Here, please see how much duckweed grows in my week in an aquarium with scalars. All she goes to feed goldfish.
Economical and non-GMO!


As it is known, duckweed and riccia grow very quickly and do not require special conditions for maintenance. For a week you will grow it on a scale sufficient for goldfish to feed.

It should be diluted in a separate aquarium and transferred to scrofula 2-a – 3 times a week. That’s all you need.

It is necessary to distinguish the feeding of goldfish in the aquarium and in the pond.

For feeding goldfish in a pond, it is recommended to use meat chips mixed with bread, as well as hard boiled cereals: buckwheat, oatmeal, millet, etc. The pond must be with vegetation.

If anyone is interested in this question, I recommend you to talk with our user “Muri”, she is a noble owner of goldfish in the pond!

I feed my goldfish with the following formula:

Resurrection – live food, Monday – Wednesday is dry and substitutes, Thursday – duckweed, Friday – Saturday – dry and duckweed.

On this kind of food my scrubs are fat and fluffy. 🙂

The food is rich in plant proteins that provide optimal digestion and carotenoids that enhance the natural color of fish.

* REMEMBER: undernourishment of fish – it is always better than overfeeding! Especially this rule applies to goldfish.

Otherwise, the aquarium will be dirty, and the fish will be sluggish and suffer from inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.

In order not to turn your aquarium into a swamp and not to overfeed its inhabitants, you need to feed them not often and abundantly. The rule is quite simple: at a time you need to pour as much food as fish to eat, until the food has fallen to the bottom.

There they will not touch it.

And if everything is more or less clear with the amount of feed, the question of how many times a day it is poured is still unanswered. Depending on what you have for fish, the number will vary between 1 and 2-3 times.

There is a difference between how many times a day feed a guppy fish and, for example, a goldfish. So, guppies require more frequent feed intake: it is desirable to do this three times a day in small portions.

It is possible more often, but do not pour a lot at once, otherwise it will all sway at the bottom of the aquarium.

How many times to feed a goldfish – you ask. It is enough for her two times – in the morning and in the evening.

At the same time it is necessary to alternate between dry food and live.

If you have a cockerel fish, then you will be interested in how many times to feed it: these fish are fed once a day, preferably with a bloodworm, 1 -2 worms at a time. And for the prevention of a couple of times a week to provide medical feed.

It is very important not to overfeed the fish, because it negatively affects not only the pets themselves, but also the condition of the aquarium. In the remains of food rotting at the bottom, harmful substances are formed, such as ammonia and nitrates, which poison the water and the fish swimming in it.
