While some species may benefit from specialised diets, most do best with a combination of foods containing proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and other beneficial constituents. Look for high-quality fish food formulated for tropical fish that provides the balanced nutrition required to keep your fish healthy and thriving.

It’s best to feed only what your fish can consume in two minutes or less. As a general rule, an adult tropical fish should be fed about twice per day. When placing food in the water, make sure it is spread out over the same area so that all of the fish have access to it. Uneaten food should be removed from the tank as soon as possible to prevent contamination and water quality issues.

🐟Make sure that you are feeding the correct type of food for the fish you are keeping. There are vegetable foods and meaty foods, so depending on the fish you keep you need to choose the right one.
