What do you mean by "food"? I assume that you mean ammonia and nitrites.

I have just over 100lbs of lr in my 46gal tank and haven't experienced a problem. Bacteria will increase or decrease depending on the bio load.

46 gal FOWLR
11lb Live Rock - 40lb Live Sand

Regular PWCs will replenish depleted resources in the water. I agree with Charlie. How much LR do you have?
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
