I Did A Stupid.. When Feeding -___-

Recommended Posts

Soooooo

Today, I did my regular evening time feeding for my goldies. As I was feeding them, the phone was ringing. I had fed the fish abut left the cap open(why I have no idea, but I was in a rush to get the phone and forgot...). Just my luck, it was my uncle who can talk for AGES, and ended up talking to me for 10 minutes til I finally gave the phone to my dad. Then I remembered that I needed to feed my tortoise. So I got her food and fed her. I was going inside the house looking at my goldies, and to my horror, the fish food container was empty. :krazy: Guess who ate all the fish food. My dogs. My two little long haired chihuahuas who LOVE getting into EVERYTHING. :wa Of course this was my fault. They did get yelled at but that is all(I would never hit my babies!).

Luckily the fishies were fed, and my dogs too :rolleyes: Of course they got dinner after :D

Soooo now I'm stuck in a rut. There is no more goldfish food. At all. All I have is some tropical fish food. Tetra color I believe. And we wont be able to get fish food til Monday or Tuesday. Can they be fed this for the short while til I get them their regular goldie food? :)

Thanks :D

How old are they? I would say they would be fine w/out food for a couple days. I always fasted mine on a weekly basis. If you are concerned though feed them some veggies. :)

nope.. the peas are a good idea.. and if you normally don't fast your fish, now is a great time to start.. i fast my fish twice per week, they're happy as anything :D :D

helps to keep them regular.

experienced members on here told me that goldies can go at least a week, maybe 2 weeks without food in a dire situation. I wouldnt worry, and peas are good. Monday is only 4 days away

Great advise already above :) check out the food list for goldies and see what you have in the house and fasting one day a week at least is a great idea :)

Lordy! Was he ok after?

Thanks all. Turns out, I won't be in town, so the parental units(as I like to call them), will feed them peas :D
