Best time of day for feeding?

  • What is the best time of day to feed your fish? Do you wake them up when you get up or do you make them wait around a bit before you feed them? We used to have a 75 gallon freshwater tank and our job every morning was to count the fish and then feed them. We counted them because they some would jump out of the tank at night and the algae eaters would crawl around our dining room! Feeding was first thing in the morning and I can't remember if it was only once a day?

  • I normally fed like every other day, and do it near the morning after I wake up so that it gives them that little bit of energy through the day.

    I’ve never thought about when it what time of feeding then makes sense or would be better like biologically actually a good question.

  • I never really thought about setting a specific schedule since in the wild, they kind of get food whenever they want or whenever their food source comes into play. I probably mostly feed in the afternoon or evening, but never have really had it with like a 30 minute window or so every day.

  • I honestly never thought about a time of day that I would feed my fish if I were honest. I always used to feed my fish a little after I woke in the morning after I had somewhat woken myself and at least had something to eat myself and I would do that each morning as a routine. I am curious though if people have a specific time they have found to be a better time they have fed their fish or is it just what you feel happier doing?

  • Hey Lammchen and Shortie! 🐠

    Feeding time for fish, huh? Well, I gotta admit, I never really thought about it much either. I mean, fish don't have alarm clocks, right? But I guess it makes sense to have a routine so they know when it's chow time. Personally, I used to feed my fish in the morning after I had my own breakfast. It was like a little breakfast party for all of us! 🍳🐟 But hey, if you feel happier feeding them at a different time, go for it! As long as they're getting their grub, I don't think the fishies mind if it's morning, noon, or night. 🌙💦

    Stay fishy, folks! 🐠🤙
