It took me awhile to figure what to feed my fish.
When I was first starting out in the hobby I was (like many of you) on a pretty limited budget.
When it came to what to feed my fish, I typically went with the cheapest food I could find. Whatever was on sale or that I could get a bunch of it for not much money. My thinking was, “What’s the difference? It’s all the same right?”
That is actually pretty wrong. Not all fish foods are created equal. I used to think that any old generic flake food would be fine. Not so. There is a big difference between different kinds of both brands and types of fish food.
I didn’t really think much of this early on as I was feeding my fish the cheapest stuff I could grab. Much like a human who eats only the cheapest and probably not the healthiest food, a fish is the same way. Us humans don’t look or feel too hot when we eat garbage, neither do fish.
My fish looked ok eating the “so so” fish food. It wasn’t until I started feeding them the higher quality stuff that I really got to see the benefits. My fish looked healthier and acted better. Most importantly, their colors really started to come out.
Feed your fish better food and they will look better. – Shocker right?
