feeding

oki only have a little time 2 write this all up. im wondering what feeding methods you ppl use. i have a feeding ring that i hate and i dont want to use it anymore. i have heard of cone feeders, and i want to go to the lfs to see if they have some. what are your methods?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Ditto Willow.

I drop in the algae wafers for the bottom feeders, and then distract the other fish with either bloodworm or flakes. It means that they all get some :)

I just drop it in and try to spread it out through out the tank so if the first wave attack is hitting the first handful the less out going fish can take on the second or third hand full on the other side of the tank.
