If you go away for a day or two, don’t forget to ask a friend to feed your fish or set up an automatic fish feeder! Many people buy fish without any research and don’t treat them properly. It’s a very sad truth but it can be changed with a little education and care! Fish deserve as much love as your cat or dog. Just because you can’t pet them doesn’t mean they don’t deserve a lovely life!

Although feeding is important, over-feeding is a serious issue with many goldfish owners, and goldfish are actually fine to go without food for a couple days. Several small meals portioned throughout the day is much better than a bunch of food at one time.

Stephen here takes very good care of his fish normally. He just got carried away on the weekend and forgot to set up his auto-fish-feeder. Maybe we’ll find out why later! ;]
