Most fish act as though they are hungry all the time. I do suggest feeding twice a day in small amounts...as much as they will eat within about 3 mins or so. At first it might take some practice, but eventually you will be able to eyeball exactly how much to feed each time.
Cant wait to see the pics.
ok good! they are still nibbling on the 1... its funny to watch lol.. they are always pooping too, but i only feed them twice a day. Ive been feeding them 2 different types of flakes I have.. both aqueon, but one of them is a color enhancer, tropical granules, and frozen blood worms.
