Default Feeding regime

Hi All bros, I'm currently feeding twice a day. Once in the morning, another in the night. Will it be possible to convert to 1 meal per day? Mayb a heavier meal? Tank mates are gars, catfishes and birchirs... Pls advise.. Thanks a lot!!

Dont know about the rest of your comm but gar and catfish can eat a full meal and last for 3-4 days but you have to ensure that there is not smaller tankmate around
My longest record is pump up my gar which last 7 days for my oversea trips.

If time permit, it is better to spread out the feeding. You do not want to over feed your fishes at one go.

Your fishes seen from your updates are not young or baby fishes, I don't see any problem for feeding once daily if your hands are tie or busy.

I feel it's best to separate feeding to allow better digestion, rather than over feeding on time.. If you have no time I feel it's okay to feed your fishes once a day.. For my previous monster comm, I feed them once a day, till they reject the food.. Sometimes once every 2 days.

I had never feed more than once per day for my fishes less during last time when I had discus. Monster fish feed 1 time per day will do, unless you don't mind water change very often. Make them alittle bit hungry, so that more shiok to see them feed during feeding time, Hehe:P
