Fish hungry

So as I'm away at college my dad is feeding my fish (triggers,puffer, and wrasse) and I have them on one time a day. U switch between frozen brine shrimp and table shrimp. My dad said that they look really hungry lol.

I have a little bit of algae problem so I cut back on feeding. Is this a problem?

My trigger always looks hungry, kind of like my dog...it you put something in there he will eat it. I feed lightly once a day.

Daily should be fine. Some people go every other day. With Triggers, I'd stick with daily, just so the don't get hungry and start eyeballing their tank mates as a snack. They won't starve if fed daily.
