food for the fish

question about food amounts

I used to feed my fish with the PHs on and just reently started turning them off

I noticed now that they are off the fish are finishing all the brine shrimp in probably a minute and looking for more

I usually give a inch squared piece for my tank every other day and a marine flake on the off days and I am wondering if I am feeding them to little.


Fish list below

X 2 Clown (nemo)
x1 Scopas Tang
x1 Convict Tang
x1 Cardnel
x1 Yellow Wrasse
x1 watchmen goby
x1 Royal Grama
x1 Firegoby

They always seem hungry but fish are known to be beggars so I just don't know.

Thoughts?

With those two tangs in the tank I would feed frozen or flake every other day and on the off days I would feed a sheet of dried seaweed. That`s what I do.

I dont know but with all those fish I`m thinking maybe two or three would be better.

I love convict tangs. They are called "Manini" locally. Nice fish.
