Question Am I feeding enough?

I wanted to know if my feeding schedule is enough, since i noticed that my clownfish arent really growing that big..

for livestock i have
2 ocellaris clownfish
1 bangaii cardinal
1 yellow watchmen goby
1 Saddle valetini puffer
2 emerald crabs
1 blue legged hermit

I feed a mix of mysis, brine shrimp, and emerald entree. Only as much as they can eat in about 2-3 minutes

once a day (usually in the morning) everyother day

the puffer is a different case, he eats with the other fish every other day, but on the opposite days i feed him a mussel on the half shell for his teeth

does this sound correct? Should i feed my fish twice a day on there "feeding day"?

IMO you do not need to increase the feeding. I feed my fish twice a week with nori on other days for the tangs and other herbivores.
