Volitans Lionfish Feeding

Hello, I have a Volitans Lionfish that is around 3-4" long. I've read it's bad for them to eat everyday, but how do I stop it eating when I feed the other fish? Once trained onto prepared food he eats anything I put in the tank, even flake. Thanks

Don't feed the tank every day.

If hes eating prepared foods then i wouldnt worry too much. He would have to eat a ton of pellets to equal a single feeder fish
