Question of feeding tank

Hey everyone! I just had a question about the feeding of my tank. I have been feeding my tank every other day and everyone seems alright. The one concern that I have is about my goby. I was doing some reading about my rigilius goby and noticed that all recommendations were to feed 2 times daily. I am worried that I am not feeding him enough, as I noticed that he has been eating the pieces of seaweed that my tang knocks loose on days that I don't feed that tank. Just wondered what everyone's thought was on this, I don't want to cause him any undue stress. Thanks!

I feed mine every other day and feed dried seaweed on the off days just like you. I have two gobies in my tank. It`s worked OK for 11 + yrs now IME.

Considering all Istigobius sift sand in order to capture invertebrates within you may want to start mincing or blenderizing carnivorous food items so it can consume the particulates.

They get alot of there food from sifting sand like innovator said. If you do use blenderized food on the off days be sure not to use to much. A little goes a long way.
