  • ✔ ENCOURAGES PICKY EATERS TO EAT MORE --- Some fish are more finicky than others or may be a bit more shy and not want to eat with the other fish. The SunGrow Floating Fish Feeding Ring allows you to feed specialty foods to the pickier fish while sprinkling standard floating fish food to the general population of fish. It won’t take long for your finicky fish to quickly learn that the square fish feeder is where to find their supper.
  • ✔ PREVENTS FISH FROM BEING BULLIES --- A great way to prevent fish in a community tank from being bullies is to use multiple floating feeding rings. Fill one square fish feeder and allow your more aggressive fish to dash over to eat. Once they are occupied, add floating fish food to a second feeding square for the more timid fish. Bullies can’t hog all the rings, so add as many as you feel necessary so all your fish can eat in peace.
  • ✔ REDUCES DEBRIS BY KEEPING FOOD CONTAINED --- By placing your pet fish’s food directly into the feeder square, it inhibits the flakes and pellets from floating into unwanted places such as the filter. A cleaner aquarium filter is far more effective at keeping your tank’s water at a higher quality level and reduces excess debris throughout the tank.
  • ✔ FITS PERFECTLY IN A FISH TANK --- At a convenient size of 4” x 4” (10cm x 10cm), the lightweight Square Feeding Ring for small fish from SunGrow is constructed of safe, high quality black plastic. It comes complete with a matching black suction cup to hold it securely in place. You also have the option of allowing the fish feeder to float freely along the surface of your freshwater tank or saltwater aquarium.
  • ✔ SAVES FISH OWNERS’ TIME AND MONEY --- Effective and creative, the Square Feeding Ring for your neon tetra, guppy, and goldfish is fantastic at saving money on excess food, maintaining high-quality water and reducing filter clogging. Placing your flakes into a specified area means that you can control the dispersal of food and more is eaten and less is wasted. Less stray food and filter clogs allows you to spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying your pet fish.

The Life of a Tropical Fish: How to Feed and Catch the Fish

This article is the second in a series of three of the life of a tropical fish and how it might get from a tropical fish farm to your aquarium.

Tropical fish, like any other pet, need to be fed and cared for. Most of the time farmers drive a small truck around the fish farm. Whatever is driven around the farm, it doesn't need to be very big. The "roads" between the ponds are barely wide enough for a vehicle to be on. One slight miscue and the driver and the vehicle will be in the pond. Not fun. Each evening the food is prepared for the fish. Different fish like different types of food. Some fish get dry dog food while others get millet. One person drives between the rows of ponds while another sits on the back tailgate and throws the food into the ponds.

When an order comes in for fish, the fish need to be trapped and picked. (I'll talk about "picking fish" in my next article.) An order can be anywhere from a thousand to ten thousands of fish. The traps used to catch the fish are wire rectangles that have a cone shaped open funnel going into the inside of the rectangle. The wider end of the cone is on the outer end of the trap. The bait is made up of wet millet squished into a ball and placed into the center of the trap. The trap is then thrown into the pond and staked to the edge. The fish go in to eat the bait that is in the center of the trap, but they are not smart enough to figure out how to swim out of the trap. Usually the traps are set in the evening and checked first thing the next morning.

Farmers also have to be aware of predators in the ponds. Turtles, snakes, frogs, and walking catfish all love to eat tropical fish. Yes, I said "walking" catfish. I will never forget the morning we went to the farm and there were catfish walking down the roads between the ponds. Those little buggers were hard to get rid of. They'd move from one pond to another and eat up our inventory. They can stay out of water as long as they don't get too dry and they walk on their fins. Channel 13 News in Pinellas Park, Florida reported in July of 2020 that the walking catfish are still a problem today.
