How many minutes do you let your fish eat, no matter what type of food it is?

I really don't time them, but I would say they are done at 5 mins. I give them about the same amount every time. I let them get their mouths full to busting and then put in a little extra for picking at once they get it swallowed. I have watched once before to make sure the amount I gave them wasn't too much and they were done well within the 5 mins time frame. :)

I just give my fish one pinch of flake and either some blood worms or an algea disk in the morning and at night because they eat too fast. Little piggies! :pigs But I love them! :wub:

I don't time mine. I feed twice daily (once or twice weekly I skip a mornning feeding) I feed a pinch of different foods (flakes, crumbles, pellets & floating pellets Sometimes I add chopped veggies or fruit.

I like to give them some flakes & while they are eating I drop in sinking foods in various places so that they have food to find while they are poking around all over the tank throughout the day. :exactly

I feed mine pretty much the same way as Jeana. I also give them a Wardley Tubifex Worm cube once a week.

So far I have been just doing a little flake food in the morning and a little in the evening - though now i see that it's important to get a variety thing going. Any suggestions on what fantails and shubbies like? :)

I give mine two or three little pellets each twice a day, and throw in some bloodworms, fruits, veggies, and either an algea wafer or a krill.

Rain, just raid the fridge and see what kinds of things they like. Mine like broccoli (but its sooo messy) and cucumbers.

:exactly Yep, every week or so I add some tubifex worms (I keep the dried kind)

I used to go to a petstore that had Live brine shrimp!! Man...fishies go nuts for those things! But now I don't know anywhere that offers live fish food :crp

I give 'em about 4 minutes but I put sinking pellets that they find all through out the day so I don't worry about them too much! :lol:

I give a pinch of spirulina flakes most of the time in the morning, then I vary it in the evening by putting less spirulina and adding a few sinking pellets like ProGold, shrimp pellets, or freeze fried krill. Sometimes he gets a brine or bloodworm treat! But, GN hates lettuce! Occasionally he'll chomp on a cucumber but he loves his peas! I just stick to the amount of food - how fast he Hoover's it up is up to him! So, I voted 2 minutes because i doubt if it ever lasts longer than that! :rofl
