Used to feed them everyday,once a day but found that it stopped breeding activity.. so switched to 2 times a week ,once a day and they started breeding like crazy. I feed only frozen canadian mysis shrimp/krill/bloodworms.

I feed my 2 1/2" juvies 3 times a day but only a small amount, I will feed less when adult, obviously. I want them to grow to their full potential size.

It is not just frequency but quantity too that makes this survey somewhat meaningless. If one person feeds once a day what can be eaten in 5 minutes and another feeds once a day what can be eaten in 30 seconds it is not at all the same thing, even if it is the same food.

Feeding three times a day seems like lots but if it is 20 seconds each time, it is less than the person who feeds once a day for two minutes.
