Feeding your fish?

I was curious to know how many times a day you guys feed your fish and how you determine how much to give them. Thanks

I feed once a day but they can go once ever other day. How much I feed depends on who I'm feeding but normally just a pinch. You don't want a ton of food making it to the bottom. Try a small pinch, if they eat that quickly, give a bit more. Some fish have insatiable appetites though and never quit. You'll have to make the call when it's enough.

I feed my clowns three times a day, small amounts each time, usually like one flake of spirulina or a omnivore flake each time.. my goby gets fed once a day, my anemone gets fed twice aweek with shrimp.

I feed about every other day (or so). Lots of variety, over lots of food. A little bit of a high quality food with good supliments goes a long way.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

once a day for the fishes, about 15-30 seconds. I don't feed my anemones anymore. The got the zoe juice from soaked food. I used to feed them shrimps once a week.
