- Feeding Instructions: For optimum results, feed daily as many times as possible, the amount your fish will completely consume within about a minute. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding. Up to 10 feedings per day may be necessary depending on number of fry and activity level. For mid-water and bottom feeders allow Hikari First Bites to soak in a cup of aquarium water before feeding. This will cause the food to sink more rapidly allowing these fry better access.Livebearers (ovoviviparous) can consume Hikari First Bites right after birth. Start feeding Hikari First Bites right before the yolk sack is fully consumed. Excess food can cause water quality problems which may result in heightened stress or serious illness. Feeding less food to be sure none is left after the feeding period is preferred to allowing uneaten food to settle to the bottom of your aquarium.
