Fish always begging


my clownfish are always begging for food at the top of the tank...

I tried feeding them more but they still do it?..
is this normal?

I want to watch them swim around but instead they're always sticking their head out at the top waiting for food.. they even fight with each other sometimes, one trying to not let the other go to the top as if it's gonna take it's food...

how can I get them to stop always waiting for food?

It is because you are feeding them more that they do this. They have come to expect that when you go by, they get food. Feeding every other day is plenty.

Been feeding every other day for 9 yrs. That is enough.
