Do you guys try to load your feeders by feeding them tons before the Ps eat them? It seems like this would make them more nutritious. What do you guys think? I have been trying by feeding tons of Omega one to the feeders a couple days and right before they go in. I hear feeders in general are not that good for the Ps, but what about if they are full of omega one? Also, how long should you quarantine before feeding? I do for a week or 2 and half the golds die.

Thanks,.
later

I really dont see the reason for all this unless you were to keep feeding those feeders with Omega One for months. Reason why is that when you eat food, your body doesnt absord minerals, protien.. ect in just a couple weeks. And by then, even after propper feeding your fish, Its still not enough to say wether its safe or not for your Ps because of condtions of your water.. blah blah blah. Goldfishes are just plain junk food.

Just change on 98 cents from a dollar...

Whether or not the feeders absorb all the vitamins ect. in the flake food, will the p's still get the vitamins by eating the feeders? Does a feeders stomach full of flakes in the p's stomach equal extra nutrition?
