How often do you feed your fish?

I sometimes worry I feed my fish too much, contributing to an algae issue. How often would one reccommend to fish a tank with say a lionfish, pufferfish, huma, and enginer goby? I try to spot feed cause if not the puffer will get it all and i worry about the other one's going hungry :/
