Feeding a Goldfish

While it may seem like a really easy thing to do, feeding a goldfish is not as easy as it appears. Here is an effective way to feed a goldfish:

Choosing food
When you go to a pet store to buy food, ask an employee for a recommendation of the food you should buy based on goldfish. Typically they will come in flake or pellet form and contain essential vitamins for the fish’s health.

Timing is everything

You should feed your fish once a day and give them the amount of food that they can consume in 2-3 minutes. For bigger fish, there would obviously be more food.

Cleaning it up

This is an important step that many people forget. If there is any food left and your fish seems disinterested, clean it out of the tank. If you don’t it will pollute the water and could be very harmful to your fish. If you want to try and keep the food in one spot so it’s easier to scoop up with the net, consider using a feeding ring.
