Feeding Mollies Dear Robert, <You got Steven Pro this evening.> My balloon mollies eat a ton. Is it okay to feed them as much as they will eat? The quality of my water is good, so there is no danger there. Is it possible that their stomachs might somehow burst? I have been feeding them frozen blood worms, frozen glass worms, and frozen brine shrimp until they start spitting them out. I have been feeding them this way for 2 months with no complications. Can I still feed this way without any negative effects? Thanks, James Kim. <I would recommend breaking up the feedings into several smaller portions scattered through out the day. I do not think they will burst, but better/more natural to eat lesser more often. Also, add some greens of some sort to their diet. Spirulina based flakes foods would help.
