Yes fish can go 1 day without food each week. Some people "fast" their fish one day a week. I don't see the point in fasting them but if you want to skip feeding once a week they'll be ok. (:

He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

Funny you asked a question about feeding. I talked to someone at Kahoot's pet store and she told me that they feed all the fish in the store every other day. I've been feeding mine twice a day but I think I might go every other day as I have alot of tiny snails in my sand. I dropped down my feeding to once a day with Wednesday being the day I do not feed them. I guess feeding every other day will be good for your water quality and the snail population will go down. As for tiny baby fish I would feed twice a day til they get bigger.

I fast mine once a week. I've heard that it is good for their digestive tracts to fast them once a week.
