I am totally an overfeeder. I can't help myself. Luckily my parameters on my tanks are normal. I overfeed like a fiend some days too.

Youre not alone. They just look so hungry all the time.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My infrequency of feedings (Every 3-4 days) gives me a little leeway to overfeed, I just try to make sure my blenny gets some food since my doesn't really go after it much

Yeah, clowns look so pathetic. I try to do every other day, but I say, well a few pellets won't hurt.

It`s best to get into the groove of not overfeeding. I feed mine once every other day. Stick with what you need to do and not let your emotions take over or one day you`ll be posting a thread that says either "Why are all my fish dead" or "Why is my tank full of algea". I dont want to write either of those hence my every other day feedings. I know that is blunt but I can assure you it`s true.
