Ok. stick with once a day and be diligent with water changes. See how that goes. Make sure everyone gets some with one small feeding and don't let stuff float all over the tank and not get eaten (if possible).

Yes. Just remember, everything you add must be removed, by YOU. Just because something has been eaten doesn't mean it's gone. It's just changed to something else. This is why I tell people that "cleanup crews" have been invented by companies to sell livestock. You are the cleanup crew in a closed system. Feed a dog a sandwich and you still have to pic up his poop!
Weekly water changes are a good start. Once a day, reasonable feeding (I'm worried about the puffer getting looked at as food).

Ok. Then you know how much you can cut back before moods change.

Shortening the photo period may help a little, but the ultimate goal is pristine water.
