you don't need to feed the sun daily. it's fun and they seem to like it, but i have fed them every 3 days or so and they were fine. i think some members of this forum don't feed them at all, and they do ok. it's not a recommendation of mine since they are non-photo, but just FYI.
be careful overfeeding for another reason. i believe that they can't process enormous amounts of food and then start to get poisoned by it. remember, in the wild, they get a lot less feedings than we give them. i've experienced this.
