Yeah I've been doing it once a week so far, but I was wondering whether it was too often. It IS hard to resist giving them food for a whole day!

How young exactly are the goldies? Depends with their age and size. IMO, fasting should not be encouraged for juvenile goldies. The reason constipation issues always arise is the excessive feeding of fish more than was necessary. If you can consistently keep with multiple small feedings, then digestive issues are easily avoided or even minimized. There's no reason to fast a young fish unless it suffers constipation. If these are adults, they'll handle long periods of fasting better than juveniles can.
