    Im curious. How do u guys feed ur livestock?

    Do u turn off all ur powerheads till they finished, or leave all the hardware running? Whats ur prefered method of feeding?

    Hi Wetty if you need to feed the corrals you can switch of all pumps it will help.

    I also leave my pumps running. It gives them more exercise. But im worried about the food that gets missed, accumulates and changes my water parameters.

    At times i switch of my return pump to stop the food going into the sump. But otherwise is just feed directly.

    i leave everything on. I dont feed all the food they are supposed to eat in one go. rather i add small amounts at a time and wait for them to eat everything first before adding some more - less gets wasted then
