Do you live a busy life? Because we sure do. Not everybody has the time to manually feed their pets multiple times a day. Maybe you work long hours and simply aren’t at home. Below are our reviews of the top products for both aquariums and ponds/lakes, as well as saltwater and tropical fish. Check it out so you can make an informed decision when you buy a mechanical food dispenser for your pets.

is a natural and well-balanced source of high-quality protein. As ingredients in aquaculture feed, fishmeal and fish oil supply essential amino acids and fatty acids reflected in the normal diet of fish. is a major natural source of the healthy omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These fatty acids are not made by the fish, but become concentrated in fish further up the food chain from the marine phytoplankton (microscopic marine algae and microbes) that do synthesize them.

Goldfish can eat other goldfish, but usually only if the other is small enough to fit in their mouth. Otherwise, they may feed off of a dead goldfish their same size. For 2 fancy goldfish that is too small, definitely way too small for 2 commons/comets. I’d recommend checking out our guide on . Thanks for stopping by!
Stocking Your Aquarium Evenly - The Spruce
Determining what and how often to feed your fish depends primarily on water temperature. In warmer water (60-85 degrees) the metabolism of the fish is high and they can be fed 2-4 times per day. At this time you should be feeding a food with a high protein level such as Pond Care Summer Staple Food. If the water rises to 90 degrees or above you should stop feeding. In spring and fall when your water temperatures fall to 50-60 degrees, you should reduce feeding to once every 1-2 days and feed a low protein food such as Pond Care Spring and Autumn food. When the temperatures drop to below 50 degrees stop feeding the fish. On warm days the fish may become active and "beg" for food. Don't be fooled. Stay strong and do not feed. If the fish do need a little food, they will find enough growing in the pond. The algae that coats the pond liner is all they need. These cold temperatures slow the metabolism of your fish and food will not be properly digested. It can take 3-4 days for the fish to digest the food. It's not worth the fish's life to give it food.When feeding your fish, simply place the fish food on the top of the tank. It will slowly start to sink to the bottom, giving ample time for your fish to eat it whether they like to eat from the surface, the middle, or the bottom of the tank. Watch for any fish that do not seem interested in any food for an extended period of time, because they may be sick.
