I'm having issues with overfeeding in all my tanks. I keep reading that it is trial & error, but I don't want my error to cause one of my friends to die of starvation. I'm sure there is a psychological component here too; I'm a bit heavyset myself. *hehe*
At twice a day, most (if not all) the visible food is eaten up. Yet I have a mild case of what I think is Planaria. And I do vacuum the gravel with each water change. I have lots of plants, so I still want to make sure they get their food (aka fish poo).
What is a safe minimal feeding? Twice a day is clearly too much. Once a day seems safe (IMO), but is that still too much? Dare I go as low as every other day? How can you even tell if a fish, snail or frog is 'starving'?
Here are my 2 freshwater tanks:
15g - 15 gallon Freshwater fish tank
10g - 10 gallon Freshwater fish tank
