How many hours do fish eat?

Asked: Brent Bellefleur, Last Updated:

Most fish require 16 to 24 hours to fully digest the food they eat, so a once-a-day feeding is quite sufficient. However, some owners prefer to feed their fish very lightly twice a day. Whether you feed one or two times per day, the key is to keep the feedings very small.
