I feed my fish flakes in the morning and at night a mix of nori, mysis, plankton and bloodworms... i think variety is the spice of life when it comes down to our fishy friends..!

I think a major problem in this hobby is actually over-feeding. Quality over quantaty is good rule. I feed very lightly once every two or even three days. I hang nori once every other day. Stripes is right that variety id the spice of life, but so is moderation. Suppliment feedings with high-quality products instead of feeding more often. Feeding once a day is plenty, once evey-other day is just fine.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I'm with Lando on this one. My tank occupants would look starved regardless of how often I fed them. Maybe your inverts are just getting the routine now. I feed every other day. Usually some frozen blend (Formula 1/2; Prime Reef...).
