What are your fish, how big are they, what are you feeding them now and how often?
Oh, and tank size.

How much food they can eat in a period of 3 to 5 minutes in a good guideline for most fish. But it really depends on what species of fish you are feeding. That would help a great deal so that we can help you.

All fish will continue to look hungry. Don't buy into it. It is way too easy to over feed. If using flakes, just a small pinch at a time and wait until it is gone. About 15 minutes later, you can add another pinch. As noted above, it does depend on what fish you are feeding.

Fish Only (so far..lol ) Damsels, Chromis, Tomato, Sailfin, Goby(diamond back) Cardinals and Pajamas about 13 or so total in a 150g tank, Plan on about 5 to 7 more and thats it for the tank.
