How Much Should You Feed Your Tropical Fish?

fishfiidThe most common problem that new aquarium owner face is overfeeding. This could make the water dirty and cause an increase in ammonia in the water which could put a strain on the filtration system  and cause diseases that could kill your fish.

The frequency and quantity with which you should feed tropical fish is dependant on the amount, species and size of the tropical fish you are keeping. As a general rule, small fish such as guppies, platys and tetras should be fed more often that larger fish. A small pinch two or three times a day should be fine. Don’t feed more that your fish can consume in 3 or 4 minutes.

Larger fish fall into two categories, predatory and non predatory. Large predatory fish like Pike barbs and piranas, should be feed like they would eat if they were in the wild. For such fish once a day or even more infrequently with frozen or dried foods is best. For the largest specialist predatory fish live foods should always be fed because frozen fish or dried food will not contain the correct micronutrients. Non predatory fish should be fed a couple of times a day with frozen or dried foods. Your pet store will carry dry fish food as well as frozen and live food.

Dogs and New Babies

dogbabydog-boaby2If your dog or cat has been your only baby for years, and now you’re bringing home a new baby, you’ll have to prepare your pet. A few weeks before the baby arrives, start spending less time with your pet. Allow him to smell the lotions and powder in the baby’s nursery but don’t let him on the crib or blanket. You can also play recorded baby noises. When your baby comes home, first greet your pet empty handed, then sit in a chair with your baby and cover her head with your hand. Let your pet sniff, but not lick. Before you know it, they’ll be best buddies but never leave the two alone together. Remember to give your pet plenty of attention once your baby is home lots of dog treats, maybe some new dog toys, a long walk wearing his new, trendy dog collar and he will not feel neglected!
