I have never had to shut my system down to feed... Feed away from the over flow
Agreed Never once have I had to shut down my system except when doing water changes.. My clowns are extremely agressive eaters and get most flake foods before it even gets near the overflow anyways.. However I feed in the complete oposite corner than where the overflow is..

You guys do just the opposite of what I do. I shut down my powerheads and sump when I feed. I guess I probably don't really have to with the Formula One pellets as the fish get those fairly quickly.

But when feeding the blender mush, I have found that the clown and coral beauty will not touch the smaller pieces. They really want the big chunks. If I were to leave on the pumps, it would be a totally mess inside the tank. At least with the pumps off, I can scoop out the uneaten larger pieces of the mush.
