Fish feeding

I know you guys probably hear this all the time but i just wanted to check.

I've listed my fish in my profile and this is what i feed them:

Pinch of flakes, 10-15 small 'Betta' balls and 1 thawed cube of brine shrimp.

I do that twice a day.

Is that enough or too much?

I also give them a bit of zuchini every now and then as a treat.

here is what i feed the fish in my 75 gallon as an example...
peas
Carrots
Corn
Spinach
Green beans
Tetra Flakes
Tetra Crisps
Tetra Color Bites
spirillina
algae wafers
Shrimp pellets
Bloodworms (frozen and freeze dried)
Daphnia (freeze dried)
Earthworms (in flake form )

not all of these make it in every week, some i feed more then others, but i think you get the idea

Variety = happy fish

a 125 gallon with only like 30 fish?

are you sure all fish are getting enough food in a tank that big?

they will enjoy veggies, i feed my fish 3+ times daily, but 2x is good enough, better than some people
