What You Should Know About Feeding Tropical Fish
By Taylor Jones
No matter what type of fish you have, whether itâ€™s an anemone, coral or crustaceanâ€¦they will fall into one of three types of feeder.
Carnivores. These types of feeders eat other fish. They are all either predators or scavengers. Predators like to hunt for their food, so they may be uninterested in what youâ€™re feeding them, if they want to hunt instead. Once a predator has eaten, it may not feel the urge to eat again for a few days. Scavengers are more opportunistic, and usually prefer to eat the leftovers left by predators.
