Funny how the simplest procedure - feeding your fish - can be so easily botched. For proper feeding, consider the following.



Things You'll Need

  • Aquarium Fish Nets
  • Goldfish Food Packages
  • Brine Shrimp
  • Weekend/holiday Fish Food
    • 1

      Purchase the right kind of food for your fish. Goldfish need protein and a wide range of vitamins and carbohydrates, so choose a nutrient-rich food specifically for goldfish. Use either flake-form or floating pellets. Ask at the aquarium store for food recommendations for the specific type of goldfish you own.

      Consider occasionally offering snacks, such as leafy vegetables (lettuce and spinach) or live food (brine shrimp and mosquito larvae), for variety.

    • 3

      Feed your fish once a day by adding one small pinch of food to the tank at a time. In general, provide as much food as the fish will consume in 2 minutes. (Vary this accordingly for larger fish.) Remember to offer just a tiny amount in each pinch.

    • 4

      Remove excess food with a net after the feeding session, to avoid polluting the water.

    • 5

      Consider using a feeding ring, which attaches to the side of the tank and allows better control, thus reducing the risk of overfeeding your fish.
