In a newly set up tank that is doing a fish in cycle, you only want to feed them 2-3 times a week and do a 75% water change and gravel clean 4-8 hours after feeding. The fish should eat all the food in 30 seconds and don't add any more after that. The bottom feeder can have a couple of pellets and leave them in the tank for about 30 minutes before removing them.I got him little pellets for bottom feeders. Is that what I should be doing. I’m basically adding 2 types of food 2 times a day, for them all to eat.
Don't worry about the fish starving, they will be fine for a few weeks. Once the tank has cycled (in about 4-6 weeks), you can feed them every day and do a water change and gravel clean once a week.
