Post by goldfishbetalover on Tue Dec 03, 2013 10:25 am

I was able to pick up new goldfish food today so hopefully this will assist with the bacteria |"poop"" issue of periodic floating at the top
Steve, may I ask please what you would recommend in terms of the number of these to feed per day.....they only had one type that was marked small....
Thank YOu

Did you buy pellets? What is the name brand and type? Might help Steve in providing his words of wisdom Wink

never really measured it out, but just try a couple of pinches twice a day and see what they eat. If you start finding it on the bottom of the tank, vacuum it out and just cut back a bit. Goldfish will forage around the bottom and suck it up later but if you notice uneaten food laying around might want to real it back a little. Goldfish are best kept on the hungry side.

I go through one of those bags every two weeks.

wow!
every 2 weeks....!!!!!
suppose the the bag should last me at least 100 yrs!!!! lol.....
kidding of course...but the bag is big.....
should I also try the baby comets on this?
I know likely Red and Black fin will be fine with it...they are larger than the babies (they are 2 I rescued from kijiji in the little 5 gallon)
also obviously will give it to the black moore and fancies....as this is where the floating issue is...ie in their tank
Thank You Steve
