Feeding Schedule?

Recommended Posts

I feed my two goldfish typically twice a day, but I noticed that the one acts different after the night feeding versus the morning feeding. When I do x2 daily, I give them each between 4-8 little pieces of gel per feeding, and do it every 12 hours. So I feed them at 8 and 8, 10 and 10, etc. It basically depends on when my day starts. Sometimes, if I'm home, I'll trim the feedings and give them a third mid-day. Is this a good schedule? Should I give them more in the morning versus at night so they burn it while they're awake? Should I go for one feeding, or maybe more? Thanks!

All your fish are pretty young, I believe. I this case, it's better to feed your fish multiple times a day. The thing to watch of course is the water quality. :)

Gotcha. Water quality's never been an issue with me, I'm very diligent about keeping it clean. This is just going back to my floating versus sinking, I find that multiple smaller meals might be better to keep her from gulping. Basically if I feed her too little, she bottom sits. If I feed her too much, she gulps. I can't draw the line though and it's infuriating.

Also, should I maybe feed her more in the morning and less at night? I noticed she gulps more at night.

I would test it out, if she gulping more at night then feed her more morning and afternoon time. What kind of food?

Gel. I find myself always testing stuff out with this fish lol, she is SO difficult. My black moor is probably furious that his schedule is non-existent anymore.
