The optimal (as far as the fish are concerned) would probably be to feed minute portions 3x a day.

Personally I feed my fish roughly every other day, maybe every 3rd day. They're fat and happy (looking). I think you'll get as many answers as people who post!

I think alot of the answer depends on the type of fish you are feeding.
