Aquarium Fish Food Tips

Having a balanced diet for your fish is just like having a good diet for any pet that you may have. Some people do not realize that the commercial fish food that you can buy at regular stores such as, Wal-mart, are anything but balanced.

You will also discover that foods bought at places like this are kept in big containers. The premise of the idea is to try to save you money. Realistically, a dry fish food which is what is consumed by most tropical fish, only has a shelf life of about three months. So when you are purchasing the food, you will want to buy it in smaller quantities. The people at the store are there to assist you, but you should not only rely on their recommendations because some of them are not knowledgeable about the types of food every fish needs.

The best recommendation is to first start at an aquarium shop.

When you are purchasing flake foods you are going to want to buy the one that has the most specialty-type flakes versus the ones that are cheaper. There are a few of the more popular brands that offer this type of flake food and you get what you pay for.

If you need to get freeze dried food then you are going to want to stick with blood worms or tube worms because even though they are not a complete nutrition amongst itself, it can be combined with the flake food to offer the best diet. The good thing about the tube worms is that they are a favorite among most tropical fish and come in the form of a cube. The cube can be placed on the side of the tank and the fish will just pick off what they need till they are full and since it is a non-pollutant type food, you do not have to remove it. This is a good food that you could use as a feeder for if you are gone for a few days.

If you happen to have live plants in your tank, you also have to feed them as well, so make sure that you are purchasing food for the live plants.

Another weekend feeding treat for when you are going to be gone, is to take a slice of cucumber and attach it to an aquarium friendly rock with a rubber band. This will feed your fish for quite a few days and it is not a dietary supplement, but more like a treat that still provides some essential vitamins to the diet of your fish.
