Starving fish??

Hey act like I never feed them! How do I know if I'm giving them the right amount?

LOL. I used to feed every other day. Now I feed every day. Either one will work. Every other day is alot better for water but every day is more natural for fish like tangs (if you dont have alot of algae) because they graze all the time.

Mine act hungry all the time and no matter how much or how often I feed them, they gobble it up like they've never eaten a day in their life!
I feed them twice a day everyday and somehow my water quality is perfect....I'm a newbie so I have no idea how that's happening.
