About this deal

And if you are still reading this, then you probably want to use slow release food for your fish tank. The King British Weekend Feeders are ideal for all cold water and tropical fish, feeding up to 12 fish for up to 4 days per block. Will feed approximately 10 to 15 average size fish for 2-4 days depending on water pH and temperature.

Calcium Sulfate, Fish Meal, Wheel Starch, Wheat Gluten, Magnesium Sulfate, Brewers Dried Yeast, Shrimp Meal, Spirulina, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), Vitamin A Acetate, Choline Chloride, a-Tocopheryl Acetate (source of Vitamin E), Niacin, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin, Thiamine Mononitrate, Biotin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (source of Vitamin K), Cholecalciferol (source of Vitamin D3), Vitamin B12 Supplement, Zinc Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Ethoxyquin (a preservative). These are used by many fishkeepers as the usual feeding method, so the holiday period just requires enough food to be placed into the feeder to last the duration of the break. Weekend feeder blocks last up to 3 days – just long enough to keep your fish fed for a short trip away from home. Deliveries are usually Monday to Friday only, although some Royal Mail items may be delivered on weekends as standard if the service is available in your area.The block will then slowly release small particles of food when disturbed by the fish looking for food.

I have also regularly collaborated with several magazines specialising in the field of gardening or more generally in nature. In a pack of four, these handy feeding blocks are a great stand by for the times when you are away from home. Today, I am going to teach you everything you need to know about this magical fish food, including why it isn’t suitable for most aquariums. If you do want to provide a 'weekend' feeder, go for fish food sticks and divide the recommended amount by two.

I was REALLY nervous about what we would come home to but 11 days later, both tanks were clean and all the fish seemed quite happy! If you must use the feeder block for the full 14 days, it is important that a water change occurs at the 7 day mark. The King British holiday block once placed in the aquarium will slowly dissolve and release small particles of food. ThisKing British food is made of a calcium matrix that is suitable for all coldwater and tropical fish.

In addition, an excessive amount of food particles in the tank can clog the filters, which also causes the water to become toxic. Automatic feeders are another option; set to dispense a precise amount of food at set times during the day.

We went away to Yorkshire for a week, so we opted to get this to feed our 4 Platy and 6 Danio temperate fish while we were away. This won’t be an issue if you are away for a day or so, but a lengthy absence is likely to cause problems. Fish can survive for relatively long periods of time on very little food, as they have to do in the wild from time to time. Manufacturers often exaggerate the amount we should be feeding our fish which often leads to a build-up of pollution in the tank.

That said, you can quickly remedy this issue by explaining the importance of feeding the right amounts. Ingredients: Calcium Sulfate, Fish Meal, Shrimp Meal, Soy Bean Meal, Wheat Flour, Yeast, Brine Shrimp, Spirulina Powder, Choline Chloride, Magnesium Sulphate, Fish Liver, Plankton, White Shrimp, Vitamin B12, Potassium Sorbate. But even if you have good circulation and the right fish, adding a feeder block to your tank can be a huge mistake! This product meets the nutritional needs of all fish (goldfish, freshwater tropical, and saltwater).Because there are so many different types of slow release fish foods available and aquarium setups, it is nearly impossible to know how a vacation feeder block will react in your tank. It's a good idea to use new batteries to make sure that the dispenser won't run short while you're away. Each block lasts up to four days, making them ideal to feed your fish if you're away for a long weekend, and is suitable for 12 small tropical fish or 5 medium size goldfish. Traditionally these were white blocks, whereby small morsels of food were embedded in plaster-of-Paris.
