Feeding

I know a lot of cichlid keepers skip feeding their fish one day a week. Do you?

I don't have a planned day every week to fast the fish. I used to back when I started out. They fast now due to my laziness, no specific pattern tho.

I used to have a planned day too. I started fasting them because I had read that it was a good thing to do in topics about bloat and feeding, but never really understood why that would make any difference -- I just did it because it seem like everyone else did. Smile I almost never do it any more.

I don't but should I? They do get missed the odd day but not often. So far I haven't had a problem but I haven't had them for that long. I feed once a day and try not to feed that much but if it wise to skip a day I will.
