Feeding

One more question how often do you feed your fish? I feed once a day ive heard some people doing it every other day.

Feeding every other day for nine years now. It will keep the excessive nutrients down that cause bad algea. It will be a good practice for you IMO

Every two to three days here. Quality over quantity. Feed high quality foods and remember to use dietary suppliments like Selcon and vita-chem.

I feed 3 times a week in the 10 gallon . 2 of those days they get pellets , the 3rd time they get frozen mysis right before a water change.
For the 7gmb I feed once a week and have done so for 4 years .
By limiting the ammounts of feedings I have found that the fish pick around the tank for foods thus helping keep the tank clean as well .

I feed every other day, switching from frozen to a little flake.

I have three tangs in mine, a Yellow, Powder Blue and Sulfain tang. Would I count the seaweed algae as a feeding day? I have been feeding them three times a week with the Algae on top of the frozen and pellets. Is this too much? The LFS said to do it with the regular feedings, what do you think?

I dont count the seaweed selects as feeding days. I just put it out for the tangs on the off days. The tangs need to be able to forage on some greens. I also put big balls of calerpa in my tang as they last a few days and the tang can forage as much as he wants.
