Automatic Fish Food

What type of food is best for a freshwater fish automatic feeder?

Just got a fish feeder to set up at my lake in Central Louisiana. Wanting to attract catfish, bream and crappie. But, not wanting to attract turtles, gar, and jack fish. What type is better: floating or sinking? Where can I buy it in like a 50 lb sack?

Pretty much any feed and seed store or FRM dealer will have food in 40 or 50 pound bags. I'd go with the floating food, and it will help you keep track of the fish activity when they feed on top of the water.

Get a game fish chow, rather than a catfish food.

The fish that get accustomed to that feeder will come to it when they hear the feed hiting the water, after a few feedings it wont be floating away.

They turtle are just something ou'll have to deal with.

There is no need to avoid vacations or worry about your fish tank aquariums while you are away if you follow the subsequent advice.

Feeding

Fish do not need to be fed everyday and having a couple of days without food will actually help fish clear out their digestive systems and will also have a beneficial effect on your tank aquariums because of reduced pollution. So if you plan to be away only a couple of days, there is no need to worry about feeding - your fish will survive! Do not be tempted to give them an extra large meal before you leave as overfeeding can cause serious problems and it is much more harmful than underfeeding!

If you are going away for longer you may want to ask someone to feed your fish. Unless they are an aquarist, be sure to pre-measure the food for each day you are away and put the portions into containers marked for the particular day.

Another option is to use vacation blocks of food which come in weekend size up to 14 day size. These blocks are made of Plaster-of-Paris mixed with fish food. As the Plaster-of-Paris dissolves in the water, the fish can eat the food.

The alternative which I am happiest with when I cannot call on someone is to set up an automatic fish feeder. They are normally battery-powered and simply clip on to you tank aquariums. You fill them with the appropriate dry foods for your fish and set them to give one or several meals per day. Since your fish are left to depend on this automatic dispenser for their food, ensure it is working properly by testing it for a number of days beforehand.

Water

A few days before you leave, give your fish tank aquariums a thorough clean and do 20% water changes each day for 3 or 4 days. This will keep the water quality as high as possible while you are away. If you are going to be away longer than 7-10 days, it is a good idea to prepare some water mix in a bucket so that someone can top-up your tropical freshwater aquariums. For a longer vacation, it is important to show the person who is looking after your fish tank aquariums how to do partial water changes.

Equipment

Check all equipment carefully before your departure, ensuring the water is at the correct temperature, the filter is working properly, the lighting switches on and off automatically at the correct time of the day and, if necessary, the automatic feeder is working.

Lastly, if someone is looking after your freshwater aquarium, be sure to leave them a reminder checklist and your contact number!

Back Home...

You have had a super vacation seeing wonderful sights, having great experiences and enjoying lots of fun and you feel relaxed and refreshed...! As a priority you need to check your fish carefully to ensure they are healthy and then perform a water change to bring the water chemistry into alignment. I am sure that you will find everything is fine and you can continue caring for your fish as normal.

Auto Fish Food

How long can 2 small goldfish go without food?

I'm planning on going on holiday for 2 weeks, maybe more. I have a 50 litre tank with 2 goldfish, 2 butterfly plecs and some live plants. Could I lower the temperature of the water so that the fish would go into hibernation? Or should I get the auto food dispensers? Thanks in advance.
What i meant was, couldn't i gradually lower the temperature and trick the fish to go into hibernation for the 2 weeks, and then gradually raise the temperature again when i get back?

I'd leave the temp and everything the same.
If you have any algae in your tank at all, the fish will be perfectly fine with no one to come feed them.

Your plants, though will NEED the aquarium light or they'll all die from no light. It's not so good to just leave the lights on the entire time. So, I'd invest your money in a timer for your lights instead of an auto feeder. I have all my tanks on a timer anyway even when I'm home because then I know the light is on for the right amount of time each day. You can buy a timer at any hardware store (or probably at Walmart too) and just plug the tanks' lights into it and choose the amount of time you want it to be on each day (mine are on for 10 hrs).

Make sure to fill your tanks up a little extra high with water before you go because a lot of tank water will evaporate while you're gone.

Goldfish Food

Goldfish food?

I;ve always fed my goldfish flake food in the past. But I wondered if they should have variety? What else is there thats good to give them which is cheapish? I dont really want to give them live food

You can feed goldfish frozen peas, lettuce, corn, they love live plants from the pet store or freezed dried shrimp.

Good luck

Incorrectly feeding your goldfish wrong food or the wrong amount of food is one of the biggest reasons why so many goldfish don't make it past a few months. It's highly important that you know exactly what to feed your goldfish and the required amount.

Consumption

Goldfish will eat almost anything that looks like it deserves devouring. That means you have to make sure you keep any scraps of food not meant for fish, out of the bowl, tank or pond. One of the common accidents is during feeding time when the person involved happens to have some kind of food scraps on their hands that inevitably get passed into the water when placing in flakes or pellets.

This can have devastating consequences because as you may already know, goldfish are prone to a number of diseases and all it takes is an alien bacterium to enter the water and before you know it you fish could be laying upside down in the tank within a day or two.

Make sure you always sanitize your hands before feeding time. This will prevent any unwanted bacteria from entering your goldfish's environment.

Flakes

Flakes have become a very popular food as for good reason. Most flake products contain the required amount of nutrient levels your fish need on a daily basis. They are also easy to eat and tend to stay surfaced long enough for your fish to consume the whole amount during feeding time.

This is important as with some other types of food that tend to sink to the bottom and rot for days, flakes stay afloat and usually is fully eaten before it has a chance to fall to the bottom of the tank.

One negative about flakes is that sometimes people get carried away when taking a portion to give to their fish. Goldfish don't need a lot of food and on many occasions suffer from diseases closely linked to overeating. Make sure you don't throw in too many flakes. A small finger-full will be enough.

Pellets

Pellets are the second most popular food for goldfish. They also contain the required amount of nutrients your fish need on a daily basis, but unlike flakes that stay afloat and easy to see, pellets tend to sink to the bottom after a while and can sometimes remain hidden and untouched, which will of course cause them to rot, intern creating unwanted bacterium in the water.

This usually means the tank water will become dirtier faster and must be changed more often than if you were feeding your goldfish flakes. It is much easier to determine how much pellet food you should feed your fish. I small finger-full usually results in the same amount of food to be placed in the tank daily.

fish food .....?

i have BIG goldfish and gouramies and i have some good fish food its like 7-8 oz of flake food ,where can i get a lot more oz of fish food ?
petsmart or petco dont have any bigger cans of fish food then i do.
i have Tetra Color Tropical Flakes also but there cans are only like 7-8 oz and i need a LOT more oz then that

Most fish stores don't stock tropical fish staple flake food bigger than the 7-8 oz because there is not much demand for it. What I suggest is that you special order them from your LFS. Place a sum as deposit and order the flakes in bulk sizes.

This seems not to be a problem with koi and pond fishfood because these fishes grow big so there is always a supply of fishfood in big sizes (small pails) for them.

Fish Food Koi
Can betta fish eat crushed koi fish food?

A while ago I bought koi fish and all of them died except for one. And when I bought those koi fish I bought a massive tub of koi fish food. I have four betta fish but not enough food and I know they don't like flakes and goldfish food (because they are carnivorous). Can I crush up my remaining koi fish food until I can get betta fish food?

Koi are technically not carnivorous. they eat more fiber than anything same as is required by your betta. Yes it is fine to feed the koi food to your betta.

Staple Fish Food

can you get STAPLE tropical frozen fish food?

If you are going to feed your fish frozen food every day, or on a pretty regular basis, it is much easier to make it yourself.

The exact formula you should use really depends on the species you are raising, and it isn't an exact science either, this website has a pretty good "starting point"...just add and subtract whatever you have around the house.

Extremely plentiful, but not terribly commercial viable, Chum Salmon, or Oncorhynchus keta, can weigh between 6-17 pounds. Because of its mild flavor, this fish is usually exported to Europe for smoking but also is the base for keta canned salmon. They are the last salmon to spawn and travel a grueling 2,000 miles up the Yukon River in order to do so.

Because of their low market value, and because of recent complications in migration patterns due to the building of dams, fishermen often choose not to prioritize them. Moreover, the Hood Canal Summer Run populations and the Lower Columbia River Populations are both listed as Endangered Species.

However, since 2006, the Alaska Canned Salmon Global Food Aid Program has been utilizing keta canned salmon for development purposes worldwide. With programs in Jamaica, Cambodia, Guinea Bissau, Guatemala, and Laos, the state of Alaska is utilizing this abundant resource to aide in disaster relief and food aid projects. With a long shelf life and clear nutritious benefits (protein rich, as well as Omega-3's), the program is mutually beneficial for the state (because they get to use an underutilized food source) and those populations who receive the aide.

Moreover, because of the rise in demand and its inability to meet it, the state has also launched a program using canned herring, which has twice as much Omega-3 fatty acid as salmon. Launched first in Uganda, Alaska sent 3,000 pounds of herring to food aid providers to see how the fish would be received in a relief setting.

Domestically, keta canned salmon is also available and makes for an economical way to get daily doses of protein and essential fatty acids. Because it is less oily than other salmon species, it has less of a "fishy" taste and can easily be added to salads and sandwiches, without overpowering them with flavor. As with all salmon products, be sure the label reads wild caught, to ensure it wasn't farmed.

An easy recipe are salmon cakes, which combine 18 ounces of canned salmon with 2 cups bread crumbs, 2 beaten eggs, fresh parsley, a half of a red bell pepper chopped, fresh dill, and lemon juice. Form patties with hands and cook in heated oil. Serve over a bed of lettuce, drizzled in olive oil and lemon juice, with a mayonnaise and chili sauce.

Great tasting Alaska seafood is a healthy way to feed the whole family. You'll find a ton of great nutrition information at the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute's website.

Cichlid Fish Food

is it ok to feed my lacecats (bottom feeders) cichlid fish food? what else should i feed them?

i have plecostomus food that is supposed to taste like algae... which the lace cats ignore. there is normal food flakes that floats on the surface for the platys and tetras, and cichlid granules for the firemouth and the red devil (yes yes... i know that the red devil and the platys shouldn't go together but they are very different in size). when i feed the tank all the cichlid food floats to the bottom, and that is what my lacecats end up eating. is this ok?

its perfectly fine. nothing will happen to them except they get fed and eat the leftovers that would turn into ammonia. You can feed them any kind of fish food as long as they will eat it. I feed my catfish betta food sometimes.

The cichlid fish has a very colorful appearance which makes them one of the most popular fish to own. Their care is not that difficult but they do have requirements that must be adhered to in order for them to be healthy.

Most cichlids come from Africa, but they are also found in Central and South America. They are found in many different kinds of waters, such as rivers, lakes and ponds. There are many different cichlid species and many different color variations.

In your cichlid tank, you must provide places for them to hide, such as large pieces of driftwood or rock caves. If you have a large species of cichlids, it is best not to put plants in their aquarium because they tend to dig up substrate materials. Other species, like the angelfish and discus prefer a planted tank.

Most cichlids like to be in water temperatures in the mid seventies. The Discus species prefers slightly higher temperatures. The staple food of your cichlid's diet should be a large flake food, but you should also feed many different types of live and frozen foods. It's good to have variety in their diet. If you have a large cichlid, it can even be fed earthworms and crickets.

Cichlids are very territorial which makes them aggressive. You must watch out for this aggression. If you have a mating pair, the male will usually drive away the female after mating. There needs to be somewhere for her to hide or else she can be killed. Because they are so aggressive, you should only keep them with other large fish that can stand up against them.

If you carefully select the fish, cichlids can be kept in a community tank. Dwarf cichlids work extremely well for this. They can be kept together pretty easily with schooling fish like Characins. If you keep cichlids in a tank together just make sure there is enough room for them to claim their own territory.

Large cichlids should only be kept with fish of the same size and temperament as themselves. Do not keep any large cichlid with a small fish because they will probably make them a meal.

If you decide to breed cichlids, you need to realize that there are two different types of breeders. Substrate brooders lay eggs out in the open on a surface or hidden in a cavity. They will fan the eggs to increase oxygen supply and after they hatch, the fish will look after the young until they are eating on their own and free swimming. After that, the parents will still protect the young against predators. The parents will be extremely aggressive during this time.

The other type of breeder is called a mouthbrooder. They put the eggs and larvae in their mouths. They keep them in their mouths until the young are free swimming. Most mouthbrooders stop looking after the young once they are free swimming, but others do continue to care for them by letting them go back into their mouths when there is danger.

Cichlids are really fun fish to own. There are so many different kinds of cichlids and some of the colors are truly stunning. Before you get cichlids, just try to do as much research about them as you can.

Flake Fish Food
What is flake fish food made of?

I just got some goldfish and I am curious to know what the flake food is....and what do goldfish, or species like them eat in the wild?

In the wild, goldfish are omnivores. They eat plants, insects such as mosquito larvae, small crustaceans, zooplankton, and detritus (dead plant and animal matter found on the bottom).

In captivity, goldfish are commonly fed dried flake or pellet food. Good diet supplements include freeze dried Tubifex worms, mosquito larva, bloodworms, Daphnia, brineshrimp, and vegetation such as boiled peas and lettuce.

Fish Food Ocean
Ocean fish could disappear in 40 years: UN?

The world faces the nightmare possibility of fishless oceans by 2050 unless fishing fleets are slashed and stocks allowed to recover, UN experts warned.

"If the various estimates we have received... come true, then we are in the situation where 40 years down the line we, effectively, are out of fish," Pavan Sukhdev, head of the UN Environment Program's green economy initiative, told journalists in New York.

A Green Economy report due later this year by UNEP and outside experts argues this disaster can be avoided if subsidies to fishing fleets are slashed and fish are given protected zones -- ultimately resulting in a thriving industry.

2050, isn't that when us evil white folk are supposed to be almost gone. Guess you folks will not be far behind us since there is gonna be no food. LOL.

It's not unbelievable, our image of paradise in the ocean is actually from after we started polluting. For example we think corals are healthy surrounded by little fish (because that's how we first documented them), when in fact corals are supposed to be full of sharks. It's being destroyed now anyway.

They have only just worked out that they can find need deep-ocean species (constantly) if they cut out the noisy diving machinery, that's how naive people are.

The fishing methods used kill the whole ecosystem, they farm the sea like ploughing a field. Protecting most of the ocean (80%?) has always been a good idea.

Should You Keep Rare Tropical Fish?

There is a lot of controversy these days over rare and exotic pets, and included in that controversy is question of whether or not you should keep rare tropical fish. Some may argue that rare animals of any variety should not be taken from their natural habitat so that they can breed and be as healthy as possible, while others argue that keeping any animal in captivity can actually be safer than letting it loose in the wild. And since keeping rare tropical fish means that they won't be in the ocean near predators and other harmful elements, and they'll be kept in a closed and controlled environment, is there really any harm to this? Let's take a look at some of the pros and cons of keeping rare tropical fish and then of course you can make up your own mind regarding this subject.

The first thing to consider about rare tropical fish is where they've come from. Obviously if you're buying them from a private seller you want to make sure that he or she is obtaining these fish legally. Some people are not against smuggling exotic pets out of countries without proper paperwork. On the other hand some breeders of rare tropical fish are licensed to breed them on their own and may have their own fish farms and aquariums where they raise them. It's up to you to find these things out for sure.

You also need to keep in mind the expense and care that may be needed with some breeds of rare tropical fish, which might need more exacting water conditions and may have special dietary needs. Many fish are very sturdy and can withstand changes in their tank water whereas some rare tropical fish are more delicate and need constant checking when it comes to the water's pH, chemical, bacteria, and so on. If you want your fish to live you're going to need to be sure you're taking care of it properly. You also need to be aware of their dietary needs, as some cannot do so well with plain flake fish food. They may need special live feed or may also need supplements added to their diet. These things can be costly, so do your research and comparison shopping beforehand and make sure you can fit these things into your budget. And of course there is the cost of the rare tropical fish itself! Some can run hundreds and even thousands of dollars, and yet you should also keep in mind their life spans. How do you feel about spending that much money on a fish that lives only a few years, if even that? Weigh this carefully and be sure you can afford this type of temporary investment.

Only you can decide if any rare tropical fish are right for you and your aquarium. Keep in mind if you're doing the right thing for the fish as well, and in the end you're sure to make the right decision.
