Feeding Poll?

How often does everyone feed their fishies???

I've read recommendations to feed fish more than once a day and was just curious how many times everyone actually feed there fish.

Thanks

I feed flake in the AM and brine shrimp in the PM. I give them a treat of seaweed sheets maybe 2 times a month. I also feed cyclop-eeze to the corals so they get some extra food there also. I am thinking of only feeding once a day..... a mix of flake and brine.
I have a 125 reef with 14 fish.

Mostly twice a day...
Sometimes I just give them an "ongoin buffet" - that is, attach a piece of veggie there that they can nibble all day or so...

Mon., Wed., Fri., about 1 oz mixture of frozen Brine Plus, Form 2, Spriu, and Prime Reef with a minced up silverside and all soaked in garlic... yummm. My tang does have continual access to live red algae and ulva 24/7 though.

How much does everbody feed? Do you feed as much as they will eat in a given amount of time? I was always impression that fish needed to be fed pretty much every day, but I guess not.
