    Hi,

    I was told that in order to make your goldfish becoming big quite fast, you have to feed it frequently; like 8 times in a day.

    Is it true?

    No. Not true.

    That fella is just trying to get you to murder your goldfishes.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Fishes will instinctively eat whenever there's food, to the point where they get fat. Eating so much also means they produce more waste and pollution. I think feeding them moderate amounts once or twice a day will produce more balanced growth and healthier fish (less clogged arteries?) that will live longer.

    i think if you space out the timing and not feed them every hour, they will grow up happily. But serious, I have seen some supra fat goldfish and frankly, I think they have difficulties in swimming and balance

    Of course... fish eat -> fish poo.

    Fish poo/Uneaten fish food -> ammonia/nitrite/nitrate -> bacteria bloom/greenwater.

    foie gras => a pate made from goose liver (marinated in cognac) and truffles

    but there are some web sites that suggested that foie gras is managed feeding? to make goose fat? of course the only thing that get fat is the liver.

    but fish, what does it mean? feeding it with liver? got protien?

    alamak!! mrs butak!! come back here, and finish what u r going to say leh~~

    please..........

    MrsBudak was just kidding about the fish foie gras... with reference to over-feeding of fish.
