Does anyone know a correct substitute for fish food?
I ran out of fish food recently, and have not be able to go o the store. I need some food products available around the house that my fishies will drink. Thank you.
If you own fry in there, try adding a few drops of hard-boiled egg yolk mixed to a join in water.
Don't worry whether they do end up going up without food altogether for a day or two, they will survive freshly fine.
What are your fish?
Some will devour vegetabels. Others can chopped up fresh fish or shrimp from the freezer. Large carnivorous fish can eat earthworms and crickets.
Otherwise, they will be OK for up to a week without food.
get some food man...you can supply it a bug or something but jeez get to the store..poor fish. And buy some bottom food its like a week feeder that you can have as subsidise up
You should feed all your fish 2-3 times a day as long as the food are self eaten within 5-7 minutes it is fine.
Try feeding the goldfish near small amount of food each time and feed them often as the intestine of the goldfish are slower within digestion as compare to other fish.
FRESHWATER/TROPICAL FISH DIET:
If the fish is herbivorous such as chinese algae eater,some species of catfish you can feed it with:
2.vegetable like pea
If it is omnivorous like goldfish,most catfish and other you can feed it with
1.small live frozen food
4.small adjectives invertebrates like shrimp
If the fish is carnivorous like piranha,oscar and other you can feed it next to:
1.anything meaty try to cut out the fat before feed to the fish
2.alive or limp food
3.plus frozen food like worm
7.fleshof any kinds.
If the fish is insectivorous like most tetra you can nurture it wth:
1.frozen aquatic invertebrates such as mosquito larvaes and bloodworm
SALTWATER/MARINE fish diet :
omnivorous(eat coral,brine shrimp,food flakes and others),
carnivorous(eat meaty food like chopped fish,mussel,shellfish and others),
herbivorous (eat plenty of green food,algae and others)
and some are insectivorous(eat insect like cricket and others).
Hope my answer do back you.
Once in a while you can feed it with some vitamins supplement to enhance its colour and growth.
Hope my answer do sustain you on your fish diet.
Good luck and have fun with your FISHES like I do :)
