Which Food do Fish eat.


Note: In a new fish tank that has not been fully cycled, feeding should be kept to a minimum. Otherwise, bad ammonia can build up and kill off the fish inside. A tank takes about 6 weeks to fully cycle.


The Fish we have had and what to feed them.


Small Neon tetras, Guppies, Platy Fish, Dwarf Gourami.

These small fish are omnivores. They can eat a variety of fine flake food, small granules, live or frozen brine shrimp or freeze-dried bloodworms.

Corydora Catfish and Plecos

These are mainly Algae eaters. Feed them sinking algae wafers or pellets, and the great thing is they will also clean algae in the tank. Many owners like to treat them to a slice of cucumber or zucchini once a week.

Keeping driftwood in the tank is very important.

The next morning I could not believe how this fish cleaned the tank spotless.



Angelfish love cichlid flakes and brine that float of the surface of the water. They will also eat some pellets that fall in their path, and even scavenge for food that falls to the bottom.
