How Often Do Fish Need to be Fed?

Fish don't have stomachs, hence they are unable to regulate their feeding habits. Only feed your fish

once or twice a day the amount that it can consume in two or three minutes. While certain fish, like goldfish,

need only be given what they can consume in a minute, other fish have varying nutritional needs. One of the

biggest mistakes fish owners make is overfeeding their fish. The benefit of owning fish is that you don't have

to worry about finding someone to feed your cat or dog when you are away since you can give your fish an automated

feeder or food block within its aquarium. Goldfish are particularly laid-back and may spend up to two weeks without eating.
