It’s a busy old world out there and all too often the only quality time we get with our fish is at waterchange and feeding times. To see fish feeding with gusto is a pleasure and a good sign that things are well with the vitality of our fishy friends.

When it comes to buying fish food how many of us put a lot of thought into food selection? It can be a baffling choice and many stick to a ‘one food fits all’ approach.

By reading through this feeding guide you might find that you could offer a more refined menu, or maybe it will help to confirm that you’re on the right track.

You’ll find tips on dried food diets, hints on how to prepare frozen and live foods and how to cater lovingly for your fish yourself while saving money in to the bargain!
