Well i dont have a set day for certain foods. I mix it up a bit but i feed. ussually flakes in the 55 and 20 2xs a week, then a mix of blood worms, tubifex, babey shrimp, my own frozen veggie cube mix( peas, cucumber lettice ect) fresh cucumber or zuccini slices in the morning. Then at night i throw in some shrimp pellets or some of the above for my night feeders.

I clean my tanks on a friday or saturday. ( vacume sand and gravel rinse out intake tubes clean sponge in tank water. I also ussually starve the fish on cleaning day to unless i have soem new arrivals to fatten up. I dont clean the glass off very often since i have plenty of fish to do that for me. In fact i actually encourage algea to grow for my loricaids.

Well, mine isn't so scheduled as yours.
I feed my tetras Wardley Total Color every 7:00 AM/PM, 7 days a week, a small penny sized amount, crushed in my palm.
I feed my bettas 3 bio-gold pellets(betta-gold? I'm on the other side of the house and don't feel like running to the fish.) every other day, and 3-5 freeze dried bloodworms on the days off. Tetras get bloodworms same day as bettas too.
Every saturday night I do a 50% water change, every two weeks my tank gets vacuumed, everything cleaned and rinsed. Foam pad filter changed every 6 weeks. Bettas get cleaned every Saturday.
