So.... Back to fish. I know they say that variety is the spice of life. When you guys feed your FISH do you toss a few different things in each day or once a week change or each meal? How do you decide. I have noticed how much they love bloodworm's. They go nuts for them. It just doesn't seem like much of a meal since they gobble them up in 10 seconds and look for more. I have been tossing in a few shrimp as well as they seem more filling.

it depends on the owner,type of fish and what kind of food. we can give our fish super worms for a week straight and have no problems but for pork,ox heart, mice or centipedes once a week or once in 2 weeks would be better.the larger the meal the more days we will give it to digest it.don't want a constipated fish swimming around.

I just have 2-3 different flakes all mixed in together + bloodworms, shrimp and other goodies as treats for whenever I feel generous. :o
