feeding schedule

I have a starter tank going for two weeks with live rock, 2 damsels, 2 clowns, 2 hermits. Everything is going fine. I feed dry flake at 7pm, with a light feeding at 6:30 am. My lighting is from 12 to 12. The fish don't seem to be awake for the morning feeding (clowns are a little). Should I just stick with a once-a day feeding schedule? Most of what I read recommends twice-daily. Thanks.

Welcome to AA!!
Agree with scuba_steve. I feed once a day and my fish are fat and sassy.
