Vacation Fish Feeding Blocks
Vacation fish food is usually in the form of a small concentrated block which dissolves slowly and fish pick at over several days time. These vacation feeders are appropriate for tetras, livebearers, and plecostomus as well as other common community fish but they are not good for many cichlids or strict carnivores. Feeding blocks can also be used to feed plecostomus which may be having a hard time getting enough food in an aquarium. If vacation feeding blocks do not work for your particular aquarium, an automatic fish feeder is often a better but more expensive alternative.
