Hmmm what do you mean by this? It's a 180 but that's quite a few large fish for a 180. I've got a 210 with a pretty huge bioload and it may even be a smaller bioload than what the original poster listed.
It's all a matter of opinion though... no magical formula. I think we can both agree that a skimmer is definitely needed though.

Depending on the amount you feed. IMO
I think it reduces the chance of an algae explosion. If you feed 10 pieces of krill in a tank at one time, there will be a higher chance of pieces/chunks going missing and decomposing rather than feeding 2 sessions of 5 pieces. As long as you feed the same amount in a day, the more times you feed the more chances your fish have to find all the food rather than most of it.
