  • Fishes usually consume their food within 2 to 3 mins. If the food remains even after 5 mins of feeding and the fishes show no interest in the food or sometimes fungal growth is seen around uneaten food or decorations; the water in the aquarium turns cloudy with a foul odor; if the filter media gets clogged very often; excessive algae growth; and higher levels of ammonia or nitrite. These are the signs of overfeeding and it has to be addressed as soon as possible.
