Feed two (2) to three (3) times daily only the amount your fish will completely consume within a few minutes, feeding one stick at a time. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding and always remove uneaten food after the feeding period. Carnivorous fish may resist a new type of food when changing their diet from live foods to stick-type food, continued use will ensure acceptance. Throwing the stick at the surface of the water causing a splash can sometimes improve acceptance as this mimics the action of a live fish.
