Ditto. Control your feeding rations by once a day only within 5 minutes.

Fish are opportunistic eaters. Meaning, if there is food around, they'll eat it. Some will even explode. Fish can leave around 2 full weeks without food.

tigers are the worst! they are big hogs when it comes to food. i find it difficult at times to feed everyone else- without over feeding the tiger barbs. luckily i have them eating at one spot, and the other fish learn to stay to the other side...and i go back and forth for a few minutes. its quite an ordeal, but its the only way i can ensure everyone eats! good luck
