Am I feeding too much?

I've been cycling for 10 days now and have 6 damsels in my 90 gallon tank. I was told by my LFS to feed them 2-3 times a day, but my nitrate reading is 25 mg/l as of today, so I KNOW I have to cut back on the feeding drastically. I'm feeding the fish flake food. Just how much food should I be feeding these fish (a pinch? less than that?)?

How many times a day should these fish be fed and at what intervals (every other day, every 2 days?)?

A small amount every other day is plenty. What they can eat in 3min is enough
