New clown feeding question

New black and white clown, for now the only resident in the tank with the inverts. This clown will eat anything! Loves mysis, pellets, and when I add garlic to the food it goes nuts. My question is how much to feed and how often? I know the consume in five minutes rule, but I was wondering about quantity. I am convinced that it would eat and entire bottle of pellets if allowed and do it within five minutes. So far I have been feeding either one inch or so of mysis or about 10-15 very small size new life spectrum pellets. Is this once a day enough? The fish is fairly small, about 3 inches. It is extremely active and loves playing near the powerhead outputs.

I feed my tank a pinch of the flakes 2x a day. I have 2 ocellaris clowns, a goby, and 2 blue yellow tip damsels.

I'm no expert here, but this is what I do and 2 weeks now my fish are super healthy growing and happy

If the clowns are the only fish in the tank you should be feeding them about two-three times a day. Take one or two flakes in your hand and crush it into small pieces. Do this twice a day. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND new era marine flakes.
