View Full Version : How to feed small pellets?

12-04-2007, 03:45 AM
Is there some methodology to this? I'm trying the NLS small fish formula. The fish first chew it a second and then spit it out so it ends up all over the bottom of the tank. Then as the cories are spitting it up, the tetras and danios go back and grab it and sometimes it stays in; sometimes it gets spit out for a third round.

Should I be soaking it first? And how do I know if I'm feeding enough? It doesn't seem like the 2-minute rule applies. Because of the mess it makes, I'm putting in what seems like a tiny amount compared to the flakes and crisps, but it's still taking 10 mins or more for it to get consumed (mostly into the danios' bellies).

Any help would be appreciated!

Mine seem to eat them easier if I soak them in water first. Also I dont add them all at one because then a lot fall to the bottom so when I do pellet feedings I feed the first half and soak the second half while they are eating.
