Please give me your lights!!!!
I am running out of fish food!!! Unfortunately will not be able to buy more till I will have my salary and that will be in 8 days from now Is there any way to stretch the last fish food I have?

Can I give to my fishes a mix of rice and bread till the payment day??

Have 56 hungry barra on my tank and their size is a small plate’s one. Have lots of worms too, but the fished don’t eat them.

My opinion is that the fishes can survive without food for a week. Cut some of the quantity u usually give them and the fishes will be ok!

What about going to the nearest grocery store?
I was going to my neighborhoods grocery and looking in their garbage when I wanted to find something to feed my rats :)

Do you have cats or dogs in your house! Most fishes like the dog or cat bisquits as long as the size of the biscuits fit their mouth.

Fishes can survive up to 3 weeks without food, so don’t worry. When I find fishes looking not so healthy, I isolate them and stop feeding them for 2 weeks.

Get a solar light and place it on some floating surface over your fish tank, the light will attract bugs for your fishes to eat!

Thank you all so much for the advices!!!
Barra don’t like the scrambled eggs cause it sinks. Can’t even use the light cause I have a lot of frogs in my backyard and they eat everything flying. Tried the dog biscuits though…lets see what will happen
