It looks like it`s every other day for all but one and that one should do the same. Get some nori or calerpa or seaweed selects for your tang and he`ll be just fine. The people that answered No.1,2 or 3 either do have algea problems or soon will.

I feed daily, but I mix it up quite a bit. Every 3 days they get a fresh seafood cocktail, and in between small amounts of flake or pellet food. It seems that anything the fishes don't eat is taken care of by shrimp, crabs, and worms.

This makes me wonder about feeding fish actual shrimp, like I would eat, in my shrimp cocktail. Cut up into tiny pieces, I wonder if they'd enjoy it... sure it'd cost more and be a pain, but regardless.

I voted every other day, although I tend to be fairly irregular with my feedings - I'm working on that. :P

I had been dutifully feeding daily, but soon enough I had to start scrubbing algae off the glass w/ every pwc, so I don't do that anymore.
