Store told me to feed 2 wafers per day, but now tank is very cloudy, Filter gets clogged with slime every week, and other fish are dying. I'm assuming that I'm over feeding and just cleaned tank, changed water and filter.
We would recommend one of the wafers every couple of days. You could even break it in half and feed one half per day, if you prefer. As to the other fish, feed once or twice a day, and 1 pieces of food (flake, pellets, whatever) per INCH of fish. So a 2" fish gets 2 pieces of food, maximum, at each meal, for example. Whatever amount of food you put in at each meal, the fish should consume it in 30 seconds or less. None of it should have the time to drift down towards the gravel. If it does, cut back on the amount.
