    Default Expertise Needed

    Pretend that you had 5 juvenile discus that are between 3.5" - 4" (like I do ).

    How much and how often would you feed them?
    No you don't throw them...

    Every 4 hours from first thing in the morning until as late as possible in the evening (and just before your water change)

    Thanks, Paul. For the morning and evening feeding I am giving them 1/2 of a flattened FDBW cube. Do you think that is enough food?

    Dont know if it's enough but I would shoot for as much as they can eat in 20 minutes than siphon out leftovers .

    Cool Re: Expertise Needed

    Personally, young discus feeding = more or less the same concept as...

    "How to make foie gras"
    Water change is not just a chore, it's my life now...

    This has helped me out a lot - they are eating the FDBW out of my hand now! They pick through the leftovers, and at the end of the day, I just rinse out my filter sock.

    I won't be force feeding my discus through a tube.
