2. If you have a family, how do you know who is feeding the fish and when?
This is a constant struggle with my fish and family... I already had two fish die
on me last week and I think it's because of these issues...
Thanks in advance!
Tom hello and welcome to TFK
I tend to feed all my fish at one time, although every few days I will add algae waffers or sinking food for my bottom feeders at night after the lights are out so that the other fish do not go after that. Some people do a two handed method to make sure all their fish are getting food depending on which levels they feed at. As for who is doing the feeding I would consider designating one person to be responsible for feeding. If you have children that are helping and you want to involve them then you might want to have them take turns feeding the fish and depending on the age I would do so with adult supervision so that everyone is being fed the correct amount. I would also designate a certain time in which the fish will be fed each day and make sure that everyone knows that for the best interest of the fish that this should be only time that they are fed. Hope this helps some.
