so i've got two ballas. they are both fairly small like 3 in. or so. i need to know how much and how often i should feed these guys for optimum growth. i'm using nutrafin max: complete flake food, for my community tank that they are in.
Most fish do best with multiple small feedings every day, kinda like people. So, that's probably a safe bet. Just no overfeeding, to avoid high nitrate problems. Feed them so that nothing is wasted after adding small amounts of food for a few minutes. They're going to get biiiiiiiig...have fun
Yes, fish are happier with multiple feedings each day. I might also suggest that you vary their diet a bit to include things like frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, tubifex, etc, larger ones also like crickets.
