My clown is going to explode

My female clown eats WAY to much. I don't know if there is anything to do about it. I try not to put to much in, but it seems like there isn't to much I can do. Her stomach is huge when she is done eating.

also, she has my male clown running scared. He is hiding in the upper right corner behind my powerhead and pre-skimmer box.

anything to be done about either of these issues? Will she over eat and die?

thanks!
-Matt

The food is shared with my two clowns ( medium sized) my coral banded shrimp, and about a dozen hermits. :P

That can't be enough to make her fat like that. Could it be a bacterial infection?
Is she like that all the time or just after eating?

she is just fat after she eats. Acually I go through about 1 forumula one cube a week so it factors out to about 1/4 a cube a day.

I feed them at about 6 o'clock at night every day and by morning shes pretty much looking normal again. (and back to begging for more food.)
