 Hello,
 
 Do  the  different  feeding  styles  affect  on  food  consumed  by  Fish  in  Aquarium?
 
 usually  we  feed  them  the  amount  that  can  be  consumed  in  few(2-3)  mins.  But  if  we  stay  at  aquarium  and  drop  1-2  pellets  at  a  time  and  wait  for  the  fish  to  finish,i  noticed  they  are  taking  more  food  in  those  2-3  minutes.  (  Is  it  become  overfeeding  situation  then?)
 
 Which  is  better  system  to  practice?

 definitely  you  will  enjoy  feeding  your  fish  that  way....  but  food  is  wasted  in  doing  so.  
 When  u  drop  pellet  one  by  one  Fish  gulps  it  immediately  and  runs  for  the  other  and  the  third.  As  it  does  not  eat  that  completely  and  chase  for  the  next  pellet  ,  it  throws  out  some  uneaten  broken  pieces  of  food  that  it  holds  in  its  mouth.  many  times  this  food(thrown/spit  away)  remains  unnoticed  and  fish  wont  eat  that.  
 
 If  you  have  lots  of  time  to  spare...  you  can  wait  for  every  pellet  to  be  finished  by  your  fish  and  then  again  drop  the  next  one..good  luck  Thumb Up

 In  my  opinion  ,if  you  drop  1-2  pellets  at  a  time,  the  stronger/larger  fish  will  overstuff  themselves,  as  they  they  will  be  the  first  to  reach.
 The  smaller  fish  will  hardly  get  any  food.
 When  you  feed  normally,  every  fish  gets  a  equal  chance  to  feed.

 @  Niranjan  
 
 Yes  they  are  wasting  some  food  in  that  way   Sad  
 
 @  Sandeep
 
 Got  your  point.  Currently  the  problem  is  i  have  brought  TetraBits  Complete  and  was  feeding  to  my  angels  but  all  the  pellets  are  not  floating.  many  of  them  are  sinking  immediately  and  fish  are  not  eating  them  as  they  lay  down  somewhere  in  the  gravel  at  bottom.  (  eating  only  floating  pellets   Sad   )

 Angels  do  pick  up  food  from  the  bottom,  however  if  your  substrate  consists  of  very  large  pieces,  the  food  might  go  under  them.
 I  have  always  fed  tetra  bits  to  my  angles  and  they  would  pick  it  up  form  bottom,  but  I  had  soft  sand  in  the  tank.
 This  is  the  tank  I  am  talking  about

 Most  LFS  guys  out  here,  (out  of  ignorance)  refer  to  corydoras  as  'catfish'.

 Ali  is  right,  as  belonged  to  Catfish  family  they  are  known  by  family  name  with  most  LFS.
 When  you  google  'Corydoras',  you  may  just  realize  that  you  have  seen  this  fish  with  your  mostly  visited  LFS.  Albinos  are  most  commonly  spotted.
 
 Anyways,  you  can  go  for  any  other  bottom-dwellers  like  botias.

 lot  of  fish  food  ,  means  lot  of  fish  poo,  and  clean  the  aquarium  day  and  night,  otherwise  rise  in  phosphate  level  and  plants  go  poof,  feed  the  fish  ,foods  that  are  rich  in  fibre  and  protein,  if  u  have  them  in  planted  aquarium  they  tend  to  eat  the  algae  and  new  buds,  so  feed  the  fish  food  that  they  consume  with  in  2  mins,  they  are  always  greedy  pigs  they  eat  till  they  are  blown  upnicely,  if  u  overfeed  your  fish  some  times  they  constipate  and  die  or  your  aquarium  gets  algae  ridden  Chuckle

 @  Yogesh  
 
 many  times  these  LFS  call  the  fish  as  SUCKER  fish.   Sucker  fish  and  Cory  the  same  one?   i  googled  for  sucker  fish  and  some  sites  say  Cory,  Sucker  and  Pleco  are  the  same  ...

 Hi  Sanjiv
 
 Plecos  are  generally  called  Suckers  under  LFS  lingo.
 Check  this  for  commonly  available  corys  with  LFS:  Corydora

 Yogesh,
 
 So  is  it  a  good  idea  to  introduce  a  pleco  /  sucker  to  finish  the  uneaten  food  laying  on  the  bottom  of  aquarium  ?  
 
 The  CORYDORA  link  i  checked  and  LFS  here  do  not  bring  these.  They  just  bring  SUCKER.  and  i  doubt  they  know  Sucker  =  pleco  
 
 Lfs  SUCKS
