How long can fish go for without food?
Posted 09 September 2004 - 05:11 PM
I was thinking about how long can a fish go without food.I don't mean to the extreme but for it to stay fit, how long?
Is there any fish which needs to befed more often than others?
What about angelfish?

Wasn't aware they could go without for that long. I'm off on holiday then!!

Since my post so far has been ignored, and since you mentioned feeding fry twice per day, I'll ask my question here:
Adult fish can easily go two or three weeks without food without any problems, the only time you MUST feed every day without fail is if you have fry which can only eat very small ammounts and need to be fed at least twice every day.
Is there a rule of thumb as to how big or how old fry should be before they can be safely left w/o food for 2 or 3 days?
I have rainbow fry which are a month old and currently range in size between 1/3" and 1/2".
