I do not fast my fish as a regular part of their maintenance, but most fish will see a day or two per month without food. If even a single fish in the tank is going ot get shipped by mail, then the whole tank is fasted for three days prior to shipping.

I feed my adult fish twice a day.. but most my fish are very vegetarian and generally need more food intake to stay healthy. Herbivore fish in nature are generally eating all day long. Fry get fed three - four times a day, with bbs being two of the feeding. Ground flake foods make up the other feedings.
