Fishes should be fed based on their percentage of body weight. For maintenance, 0.5-1% body weight per day is adequate. Fish should at least be fed 5-6 days per week. The most common mistake made by fish owners is over-feeding their fishes. This often results in the degradation of water quality.
Note* fresh food (meat) contaminates water easily.
Automatic feeders are available to ensure feeding time for fishes are constant. Water temperature and oxygen impact feeding behaviour of fishes. You should now what type of feed is meant for your fish. Sinking pelleted feed for bottom feeders, floating pelleted feed for surface feeders, slow sinking flaked food for small fishes.
There are different types of fishes: Omnivore, Herbivore, Carnivore
