Mirek Posted August 20, 2021 Share Posted August 20, 2021 I've got an angelfish pair that raised about dozen and half babies to ~1/4 in size (~4 weeks?) in a bare bottom 29 gal with just a few floating plants. I do water changes about 2x a week there as I am feeding the adults 1-2x and the babies 3x daily. However, I am leaving for 3 weeks soon and don't want my house-sitter to have to do any, or only minimal water changes, so I am planning on having all adult fish tanks (which are mostly planted and established) be fed only every other day or less, which is not an option for the babies. I am thinking that separating the babies to their own 20 gal now, so that they could be fed more often than the adults, would be safer than leaving them with the parents during lesser feeding. Can I also slow down feeding the babies to say 1x daily without affecting their well-being in the long run now, or do they still need 2-3x daily feeding regimen? Would you do anything differently about this whole situation? It's my first time leaving for so long, so I thought better to ask beforehand.
