Anyone has experience with anthias fish? Can advise?

Anyone has any experience with dispar anthias? I mean actual experience/luck keeping them? Are they hardy? Are they hard to feed?

My main concern is how often do they need to be fed? I know at least 2 times a day but how much?

I like them soooo much but I normally don't like to do too much feeding as this foul up the water too quick. If 2 times a day with SMALL amount of foods I think I can make some exceptions. If I add 10 of them will they have problems with my 10 existing chromis? Are they aggressive fish to have?

Any actual/real experience will be very much appreciated.

I have the bartletts anthias and I`m still feeding every other day but I do see them over grazing on the seaweed selects that`s for the tang. If I see that they cannot make it on every other day then they will go back. I`m not going to ruin my tank after all these years. Here are pics after 1 month.
