Depends. Which fish? How many fish, how big, how much is fed at each feeding?

I usually feed once each day. I recently was out of town for a week and left a bunch of small baggies with pre-measured flake food for a friend who stopped in to feed and maintain my top off water. He fed them every other day.

In the wild they spend most of the day searching for food. Some fish are grazers that need a (n almost) constant source of food. I add some nori to a clip 1 or 2 times a day for my sailfin tank, foxface lo and bicolor blenny. The coral beauty grabs some too.

You should choose your livestock accordingly and make sure not to get those that need constant or multiple feedings per day.

You should be fine with a M-W-F feeding schedule. The blennie will probably find some algae on the rock to pick on between feedings. The damsels tend to get nasty when in a group. If you're only going to have one it should be fine too.

Is there going to be a problem between it and the clowns?

TIA
