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. 🙂

What can feed goldfish. Feeding goldfish

Properly balanced feeding of goldfish is the primary condition for success in their breeding. The basic rules here: it is better to underfeed than to overfeed the fish. It is necessary to feed a little and according to the regime.

So, what can feed goldfish.

Goldfish eat any food – vegetable, dry, live. The important point is only the size of individual pieces of food, which must be smaller than the mouth of the fish.

Moreover, in the diet of fry, most of them are occupied by live and dry food, whereas for adult fish it is preferable to give food of plant origin. This is due to their incredible voracity, and excessive feeding with live food can lead to obesity.

The live feeds that goldfish simply adore include daphnia, tubule, bloodworm, cortex, earthworms, etc. It should be noted that there is a lot of trouble with such feeds, because they also need to create certain conditions for the maintenance of life.

And earthworms should also be kept in clear water for some time before feeding to clear the intestines from the contents.

Sometimes you can treat the fish with shrimp, squid, fillet of lean fish or shredded meat from lean beef. But do not overdo it, because goldfish are not carnivorous, and their digestive system is not completely adapted to such food.

Perfectly eat goldfish and boiled in unsalted water, cereal – steamed semolina, wheat, buckwheat, millet. Before giving porridge to small fish, the grits are well washed in running water, as it should not be sticky in any way.

Sometimes you can feed goldfish even with bread, but remember that it is not a substitute for feed of plant origin.

Most of the diet of adult goldfish is vegetable food. Aquarium plants with soft leaves, such as hornpole, duckweed, riccia, wallisneria, wolfia, naiad, etc. Finely chopped and scalded with herbs: dill, parsley, dandelion leaves, young nettle, spinach, lettuce, plantain.

Chopped vegetables: cucumbers, carrots, pumpkins, zucchini, cabbage leaves.

Dry feed should be given to goldfish several times a day in small portions. To avoid swelling of dry food in the fish’s esophagus (this can lead to unpleasant consequences, even sickness and death), it should be kept in water for 15-30 seconds before feeding.

The optimal mode of feeding fish – twice a day, with the alternation of all types of feed. Goldfish should eat a dry feed completely in 2-5 minutes, and vegetable and live in 10-20 minutes.

Half an hour after the completion of the “meal” you need to thoroughly clean the aquarium from the remnants of food.

To determine the one-time volume of servings, watch the pets. At first, the fish with excitement attack the food, and a little later they eat more calmly, which indicates the end of feeding.

If you properly adjust the mode of feeding adult goldfish, then they will not be afraid even a week-long hunger strike. Leaving your pets for a longer period, leave clear instructions on feeding to a trusted person.

It would be better to distribute the feed in batches or make a list than to feed and when and in what amount of fish.

Pick feeds deliberately, do not overfeed goldfish, care for and regularly clean the aquarium. And then these beautiful creatures will long please you with their amazing beauty.

How, what and how much to feed Goldfish? description of the photo video.

Good feed in balls is high in protein. Balls should be soaked in aquarium water for ten minutes before giving them to the fish.

It must be remembered that the balls are not suitable for all goldfish: some begin to have problems with buoyancy. If this happens, immediately stop giving such food.

Feed the fish better with a well-defined interval. In this case, it is less likely that you will overfeed or, on the contrary, forget to feed them.
