    This question has been brought up and I thought a poll was in order. How many times a day should you feed your fish?

    gone fishing.
    I feed my fish twice, once in the morning and once at night.
    And I do weekly water changes as well to keep up with all the mess. :D

    I do two a day because I have some ghost shrimp on the bottom that don't get enough scraps if I only feed once.

    Many of my predators get fed every 2-3 days, some once per day (along with most of my other fish, some of my young fish get twice per day.
