New Fish feeding ??

Just got a yellowtail blue damsel, he's only 3/4 inch. I got some mysis shrimp, prime reef flake, tetra marine pellet, and brine shrimp plus.

How should I go about feeding him? How many times a day? Which food and how much per serving?

He's the only fish in the tank, and my first saltwater fish!!

Thanks for your suggestions mates

Put a small amount of food in the tank (no more than the fish can eat in a couple of minutes, I feed once per day or once every other day, I would alternate the foods you already have, variety is very important when feeding SW fish.

Congratulations on your fist SW fish!!!
