    Goldfish are opportunist eater and will continue to eat even when full, which can cause SBS (swim bladder syndrome). Feed once a day, as much as the goldfish can consume within 2-3 minutes, that's it.

    Feed them as much as they can eat in 2 minutes, twice a day. Their main diet should be either goldfish flakes or goldfish pellets. Once or twice a week you can give them bloodworms, brine shrimp, or cooked fresh vegetable like spinach, zucchini, or peas (the inside, not the outer shell).

    You should feed all your fish 2-3 times a day as long as the food are being eaten within 5-7 minutes it is fine.

    Try feeding the goldfish with small amount of food each time and feed them often as the intestine of the goldfish are slower in digestion as compare to other fish.

    If the fish is omnivorous like goldfish you can feed it with "MIX" diet such as

    1.small live frozen food worm


    4.small aquatic invertebrates like small crustacea eg.shrimp/prawn flake/pellet foods like pea

    7.fruit like apple,cucumber,

    Once in a while you can feed it with some vitamins supplement to enhance its colour and growth.

    Hope my answer do help you on your fish diet.

    Good luck and have fun with your GOLDFISH :P

    It depends on how many goldfish are there in your aquarium.Feed them once a day,the same time of the day if possible in the morning.

    the plural of goldfish is just goldfish not goldfishes

    that depends on how big the goldfish is

    a 3cm goldfish will need less than a 40cm goldfish
