- - Overfeeding? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/freshwater-tropical-fish/overfeeding-60740/)
I've been thinking lately about the feeding process I have for my 10g community tank and I think I may be overfeeding them, which I definitely do not want to do.
Inside I have neon tetras, cories, and ADF's.
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?
It doesn't sound like you are over feeding them you can feed them 3 times a day just make sure its a ammount that they will eat up andy left over food scoop out you dont want a cloudy tank from the ammonia levels being high, flake foods will do that make sure to check your ammonia level :) but sounds like me with my fish I feed them some blood worms then some flakes then some brine shrimp there happy and healthy just make sure if there getting that bloated tummy to cut down a lil bit hehe hope this helps!
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,
I have 4 platies and I feed them once a day in my 16 gallon bow. I used to feed them 3 smaller amounts a day and found my water to be cloudy so I stopped.
I dont think your overfeeding tho.
I use to have two adfs and I would say two cubes is to much unless they are very small cubes. How many of each do you have?
Thanks for the insight guys!
Calmwaters, it isn't only my 2 ADF's that eat the bloodworms. My cories eat them as well. Both cubes are gone within 10 minutes of them being at the bottom of the tank.
I think you're good with the exception of the bloodworms. I would reduce to one cube as well.
Sounds good, I'll reduce to one cube every other day.
