I have a 20 gallon fresh water tank with an operating water filter system. I currently have 8 fish. How often should you feed them? At present, I feed every other day. I have a quite large Pleckie taking care of the bottom.
What kind of fish are they? With 8 large fish you definately should have a bigger tank than 20 gallon. The Pleckie will also grow healther.
Depending how big they are you typically feed fish once or twice a day for a minute or so, small finger-pinch amounts of food until they lose interest in eating. Don't just dump food in the tank and take off. Hand feed them and spend time with them. Inspect health. If colors are off, inspect heating and lighting. Check condition of the glass - scrape off algae immediately.
Fish need a variety of diet. Don't just feed fish the same thing every time. Feed them imported brine shrimp, bloodworms, insect eggs, the Pleckie should be fed an algae wafer when the other fish are distracted.
Thanks for this Nick. With the exception of one Angel about 2 inches wide, t others are very small. I do need to spend more time interacting with them. T Angel is always watching me like a small dog. Maybe the bottom has been too clean.
