How many pellets for a 2" goldfish

Recommended Posts

Just out of interest how many Hikari Lionhead sinking mini pellets would you think a 2" goldfish (not measuring it's tailfin) would need at one feeding?

A good way to test this without having to weigh the fish would be to drop in pellets one at a time until the fish has a mouthful and is chewing, without there being any pellets left on the floor of the tank. That is how many they need per feeding. :)

Agreed.  This assumes you are feeding more than once a day.  Is this a long or short bodied fish?  A 2" s.l. long-bodied fish is just a baby while  a 2" sl fancy is likely more mature, and about twice as large.

That was really helpful :)   I was wondering how much to feed my little oranda.  She's only 2 inches (tailfin included).
