Reef Chromis

Does anyone know if you need to feed the reef chomis everyday. I only feed every other sometimes every 2 days. I dont know if they require multiple feedings a day or daily feedings. I am considering getting a couple to add to the tank. Thanks!!!

Most fish only need to be fed every other day or every two days. these fish will be fine with every other day.

Honestly, I don't specifically feed my chromis at all, they just eat the scraps from me feeding everything else.

Every other day feeding helps keep the water nice too IMO. Low to no nitrates. I've not fed my fish for 6 days and they did fine. 'Course I was out of town and fed heavily daily for 3 days straight or so.

I might feed them 2 or 3 days daily/regularly sometimes, but feed every other day most often. BTW, i gotot one chromis. Tangs. Blennies, clowns goby, etc.

I know I have some chromis and feed them every other day. If push comes to shove just break your feedings in half and feed everyday.
