Feed every day?

New to saltwater and feed combination of mysis shrimp daily, mixed with either formula two, or pellet food. My stock consists of 2 tangs, 2 clowns, dwarf angel, goby, and basslets. Plus super nasaurus snail, fighting conch, 2 mex turbos, purple urchin, 2 red Cortez crabs, 2 peppermint shrimp. So my question is feed a little daily, or every other day? It's 90 gallons

I feed heavily once a day. But its okay for me because my skimmer is rated for 3 times my tank size.

Can your tank handle the load? I feed every other day. I guess keep an eye on your ammo and trites/trates . Keep them low. If yo start seeing them rise cut back. I'm thinking of going to everyday as I have no ammo no trates no trites and no phosphates either. I'm sure that make my fishy friends happy.

Feeding every other day or every 2 days won't hurt and will keep the excess nutrients down. Many say it's best to feed small amounts frequently, which I agree, but who has the time and effort to keep up w/ the maintenance? If you can feed small amounts every day then keep doing it. If you want to change your feeding schedule then I change it slowly and get them used to being fed less often.
