How often should i feed?

I have one medium sized yellow tang, 5 zebra hermits, a florida anemone, a peppermint shrimp a clown fish, and a large cowrie snail. I have been feeding them "mega marine angel", about less than half a block once a day. I have since developed a bad case of cyno. is it possible that i could be over feeding?

the easiest way to tell if you're over feeding is if there are a lot of pieces of the food still floating through the water 45-60 seconds after feeding.

In regards to the Cyano: it could be overfeeding (see above) but if your tank is young, may also just be part of the growing pains.

I got my new tank up on the 30th of december and I am still working on Cyano, but it seems to be receeding. Get yourself some "Algone" from your LFS it helps with the initial algae bloom, or buy a good cleaning crew.

Insufficient water movement over your substrate can also be a reason for a cyano bloom. Try moving your PH's around to make sure you are getting a good flow over your substrate.
