How often do you feed your fish?

I know this is a loaded question depending upon tank size and inhibitants, but I thought it would be neat to see how often people are feeding their fish.

The last option is supposed to be greater than 4x a day.

Where is the every other day option? It will get more votes than any you have listed.

I feed every other day . . . and sometimes once every third day. All my fish seem very happy with this schedule.

Ok, so make the last option every other day.

I've tried to feed my fish every other day and I find my Tangs get really skinny. They seem content if I feed them every day, so I've been sticking with that schedule.

I voted in GT4 assuming that was replaced by every other day. I don't consider Nori "feeding my fish". General population gets every other day. The tangs I keep fat.

I feel the same way. I feed seaweed everyday, primarily for my tang, and meaty foods every other day.
