  1. I'm making a feeding schedule for my future goldfish and I wanna make sure that I get it right the first time. I've been reading that variety is key and I think I've got that down. As for the staple food source, I'll be feeding 2% of the fish's body weight, correct? This percentage does not include supplemental food like brine shrimp, bloodworms, or spinach, etc. Would the Repashy gel food be considered a staple food source, like sinking pellets? Or is it supplemental? Should I consider it to be a part of the 2%? _____________ The feeding schedule: Every morning, --Sunday, frozen krill --Monday, edamame --Tuesday, frozen daphnia --Wednesday,green leaf lettuce --Thursday, frozen bloodworms --Friday, peas --Saturday, frozen brine shrimp with spirulina Every mid-day, 1% (or 2% if the gel food is considered supplemental) body weight of Omega One sinking pellets split into two to three times. I'll be using an automatic feeder since I'm at work, any recommendations of which one is good? Is there any reason why I should be using Hikari sinking pellets instead? Every night, 1% body weight of Repashy Super Green and Soilent Green 50/50 mix. ______________ When feeding the frozen foods/supplemental, should I just plunk in one of the cubes or should I feed a certain percentage of the fish's body weight? How many peas, edamame, and spinach should I feed per fish? Also, should I be feeding the gel food in the morning instead of at night, vice versa with the supplemental? Doesn't really matter to me, just wanted to know the best order to feed for the fish. BTW, I have a 75 gallon "low-tech" aquarium, heavily planted. I'll be getting two Orandas eventually. I figured if I understocked and feeding pretty well they won't destroy their home that I've spent months creating. Thanks for reading. If there are any changes you think I should make, I would greatly appreciate your advice. Sorry if it's long and there are so many questions. I tried to keep it short and to the point.
