Hol­i­day feed­ing advice

Practical Fishkeeping (UK) - - Tank Community -

I read with in­ter­est the ques­tion on feed­ing fish while on hol­i­day in the July is­sue of PFK.

I have a Juwel Trigon 350, which has an open­ing at the top on which to stand the Juwel au­to­matic feeder. Be­fore go­ing away on a two-week hol­i­day, I filled the feeder with flake and checked that ev­ery­thing was func­tion­ing cor­rectly.

On my re­turn I found that hardly any food had gone into the tank. Upon in­ves­ti­ga­tion, I dis­cov­ered that the flake had ab­sorbed con­den­sa­tion from the tank, caus­ing it to clog.

I men­tioned this to my local aquatic dealer who told me she had had the same prob­lem and that it would be best in fu­ture to use crisp or pel­let food rather than flake in the feeder.

I thought I’d pass this advice on in the hope that it will help fel­low fish­keep­ers. David Mcin­tyre, N. E. Lincs.
