Hi all , i have three of my five tanks set up with auto feeders , i have them set to feed at 8am ,2pm and 8pm , thats three times a day , i feed spectrum tropical in the community and have since yesterday mixed some flake food in with the pellets, this is to ensure the smaller fish get some food , i was feeding flake food manualy . Have done this because holidays are approaching. The coldwater has now a mix of tetra fancy goldfish food and some flake, the livebearer breeding tank is just feed crushed up flake , .The koipond will also go on an autofeeder once it arrives from ebay feeding a high protien pellet food . Now my question because of the total lack of maintaince while away i will reduce the amount of food fed so am i better to feed one desent feed each day or the current three feeds but much smaller amounts .Robert

How long are you going away for?....if it's only 7-10 days then have you considered not feeding them at all?....if it's much longer then can you adjust the auto feeders to dropping once every 5-7 days? although I think most of the non digital ones are every 12-24 hours only.........even at that i'd only be feeding every 24 hours sparingly............only feeding your fish once in 7-10 days can be a bit mad for some fishkeepers to contemplate but they will be still alive and well when you get back,trust me


What do you call a three legged Donkey?
