Feeding fish on roadkill and other carrion (fish forum at permies)

Before feeding goldfish peas, remove peas from the pod if you bought them attached.

I am a fish farmer and I have been in this business for like 6years now; meanwhile there are some local feeds more or less of foreign standard I can vouch for e.g AQUAMAX FEED by uac) which has a very good feed formulation and also economical, blended with Aqual feed can infact save you from different sorts of imbalances and uncertainties.
“The fish feed industry is primed for a major disruption,” according to  from Fish 2.0, the seafood business competion now underway.

Join us every Saturday at 1:30 p.m, for our live fish feedings and informational demonstrations at our 34,000 gallon, freshwater, educational aquarium. Times subject to change based on animals' needs. The aquarium is filled with over 400 native New England fish (courtesy of the Massachusetts Department of Fisheries and Wildlife). Other water features include a 5,500 gallon turtle pond and a 3,800 gallon trout pool. An hour after feeding goldfish peas, check the substrate for uneaten food and remove them from the gravel (either with  or a net).

In most cases, fish only need to be fed once a day, and you onlyneed to feed a small amount. Your fish should be able to get enoughnutrients from the food they can consume in under two minutes, as longas the food provides for their nutritional needs. Food that stays inyour longer than that can get caught inyour , , or and will begin to decay, contributingto poor water quality. This poor water quality will increase susceptibility and filtermaintenance. It could also increase the need for , which in turn stress thefiltration system and the fish, again increasing . Small, regularfeedings provide fish with the nutrients they need and keep your tankcleaner than large or more frequent feedings. Over feeding can alsocontribute to growth, which can beunsightly, remove vital oxygen from the water, and increase your chores.Feeding is one of the most important aspects of caring for fish so be sure to research your fish and their feeding habits to have a healthy tankful of fish.
I've heard that grapes can contain some oxalates and that apple seeds contain cyanide. The math on these says that if you got a koi to eat a cubic meter of grapes or appleseeds in a day's time, said koi could perish from the crystallization of the oxalates in his kidney. For your information, a koi that could eat a cubic meter of grapes in a day would measure about forty-two feet long and weigh in at 2,300 pounds. So my advice on koi treats is, "If you would eat it, and the fish can eat it without it dissolving in, or polluting the pond, try it, and see if they like it. Don't feed any treat so much as to replace their interest in nutritionally complete staple food."


Well, what discussion of koi nutrition would be complete unless we talked about the koi's more jocular habits of eating fry, frogs and each other? More fantastic than fact, here are some things you might not know. Large Koi and large frogs In the spring you can hear spring peepers in your pond and low areas of your yard or the woods. In the cold months of spring they spawn and lay strands of eggs. And sometimes, they get in your pond, and a big koi catches one. Or, like at my house, all the koi catch one. And so you get up in the morning and one of your koi has a pair of frog legs sticking out of its mouths and they like the taste pretty good, but they can't work it down. So they swim around with the frogs in their mouths like pacifiers. Some of the largest fish can get the frogs down, some eventually spit them out and you have to net them out or they will decay and make a mess.


Finally, you should know this about baby koi. A momma koi will lay many tens of thousands of eggs per spawn. And her babies will be very numerous. And these fry mature at differing rates. The brown solid-colored babies will mature faster than the bright solid-colored fish and these babies will mature more quickly than any two or three colored fish. So it happens that often you see several much-larger baby fish in a spawn swimming about with a tiny sibling tail in its mouth. These cannibals eat prodigiously and the more they eat the bigger they get and the faster they get there. So breeders know to remove these cannibals. If you don't you will have a nice collection of Ogons and no multicolored fish in a spawn. So koi can be cannibalistic when they're fry. Later in life, it would be exceedingly rare to see a large koi eat a small one.Hi Adam, Glad you explained about feeding fish for 5 minutes. I believe my little Betta would keep eating the pellets as long as I put them in one at a time, so I believe I will stick to the 4 he gets plus some blood worm later in the day.
I don’t believe I know how to send you a pic of my little aquarium, not real computer savvy. Would like to though.
