Problems Associated with Overfeeding
Accumulated uneaten food and fish waste pose a number of problems, as listed below. First, they can result in lethal changes in the water chemistry. The breakdown products are toxic and can stress fish, making them prone to other diseases. Overeating, in and of itself can cause health problems. Finally, the aquarium can become very unsightly, not pleasing to the eye, or the fish.
High Ammonia and Nitrite Levels - The protein in uneaten food and fish waste is broken down into ammonia and nitrite, which are extremely toxic to fish.
Low Oxygen Levels - When organic material (uneaten food and fish waste) decays, it is an aerobic process, meaning it uses oxygen and produces carbon dioxide. This means there is less dissolved oxygen in the tank or pond for the fish to use.
Low pH Levels - Just as the breakdown of organic material lowers the oxygen level, it also lowers the pH of the water as acids are produced during the process. This acidification especially stresses fish that prefer an alkaline pH.
Algae Bloom - Algae growth is one of the most common problems seen in aquariums. The number one cause is overfeeding. Unsightly blue-green and red algae multiply when there are large quantities of dissolved organic material, nitrates, and phosphates in the water, common occurrences when fish are overfed.
Cloudy Water - Cloudy water is usually due to decaying organic matter. Cloudy water due to overfeeding will generally clear if the fish are not fed for 2-3 days (for most fish this is not a problem).
Clogged Filters - Filter systems are designed to remove normal amounts of waste materials and byproducts from the water, not correct the excessive problems that occur with overfeeding. Uneaten food and waste materials can collect in the filters and continue to produce toxic products, and clog the filters, thereby reducing their capacity to function even more.
You have pampered your fish and plants, and now it's time for an extended business trip, or an opportunity to pamper yourself with a well-deserved vacation. But what about your aquarium? How can you leave for three days or longer and be sure.
With the wide variety of commercial foods
available, it is sometimes difficult to determine
which type of food to feed your fish. When
choosing a food, the first thing you need to know
is what type of diet is natural to your fish.
Fish need protein, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately few foods contain all or enough of these essential nutrients. Therefore, the best way to ensure all their nutritional prerequisites are met is to give them a varied diet.
