Just wondering how many times a week or day does someone feed silver dollars?

I used to feed mine in the morning and then again later on in the evening. But they would also take the opportunity of getting food elsewhere when other fish were being fed so they never went hungry. It's always best to actually under feed fish, rather to overfeed them.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

At most once a day, they are fast enough to steal food from other fish

I have to because my platydoras hunts at night as I said in the other post. He sleeps a lot in the day like a human would at night :p.

Am I wrong to feed my fish a small amount (gone within a min) 3 times a day? My reasoning was they don't seem to leave any behind to cloud up the tank, and I wanted to make sure they get enough food to grow
