How much should I feed my fish?

Author: Aussie Vet Products   Date Posted:8 September 2014 


I just got some fish to put in my office at work but don’t know much about them.

I’m just wondering if you could tell me how often I should feed them?

Thanks, Suzanne.


Hi Suzanne,

Thanks for your question!

When feeding your fish, you need to ensure that you only feed them as much as they will be able to eat in 5 minutes.

You should be careful not to feed them any more than this as it can lead to diminished water quality and nasty waterborne issues in your tank.

We recommend also feeding your fish food that is specific to its species. For example, feeding your goldfish Pro-Balance Goldfish Food Diet.  

Or, Pro Balance Betta Food when feeding Siamese fighting fish.

Thanks again for your question. I hope this helps while caring for your new fish
