I have a single female BN and I feed her NLS algae wafers.She doesn't always eat from the wafer and never eats the whole thing.I remove the remainder in the AM. Is it normal for her to eat like this? How often should I feed her?

how big is the tank and what else is in there? also what do you feed the tank?

if there is still some food left over then that suggests that you are feeding too much. I'd halve the feeding. it will still find plenty to munch on, slime and algae are always growing and will giv eit some to nibble on.

My tank is a 20 gallon and I have 2 platys. I feed the platys NLS small pellets. I'm careful to not overfeed them. I also have a lot of live plants and a snail population. There's also driftwood that she can't leave alone, always munching on it. Should a 2 1/2''BN eat all of the wafer(large) in one night?
