I feed the cories and ADF's every other day- two cubes of bloodworms. (They go fast!)
I feed the neons pretty much everyday with flakes. They also eat the bloodworms.
I'm sure I'm overfeeding but I really don't know how much I should be feeding.
Can anyone outline how much and how often I should feed each species in my community?
Were it me,I would reduce the bloodworms to one cube every two or three days ,and feed the neons a pinch of quality flake food,no more than you can pinch with thumb and finger once each day.
No one ever lost fish by feeding once a day. With small fry,,, you should feed same amount but three times a day for first four to six weeks to encourage growth,
