To be honest feeding mutilple times per day is actually more natural and more healthy for the animal (with the exception of predators). However, if feeding multiple times a day, you should feed no more than can be consumed in just a few seconds

Agreed. All the books I have on FW and SW fish say to feed several times a day. But how many people actually know how *MUCH* to feed in those feedings? The majority of people overfeed their fish in one setting as it is. Can you imagine how much people would overfeed their fish in several feedings a day? 8O

So, for anyone wondering, this is why we generally recommend to feed once a day or less.
