A hungry fish (appearing to be hungry) is a healthy fish. By instinct fish will eat if food is present, so resist the temptation to overfeed which can cause trouble for the fish as well as the tank's biological balance.
Now I just relised I've been overfeeding my fish. I suspected they're getting bit plumber but didn't know 30 minuts breakfast once a day is too long. Been doing from time to time one day starvation to them too.
I'll have to keep that in mind too.
Good to know thnx
