Sinking pellets two or three times a day is good for Goldfish
. Flakes aren't good especially for the fancies because they often cause bloat. Younger, growing fish should be fed more, but in an effort to keep the waste to a minimum in that tank, once or twice a day is fine.
Jaysee is right. Those two fish need a larger tank. A 30 gal is minimum for two Goldfish
, but as eaturbyfill suggested a 55 gal is best. This will also enable you to add one or two more Goldfish
to the school. If you want to convince your brother to upgrade, show him some videos of large Goldfish
on youtube. They can get huge (8"+).
