How many times a day should you feed your fish. I've got a 30 gallon tank Stocked well with "community fish" I've heard anywhere from 1 to 3 times daily. I know it depends on the fish etc. but what is the basic rule of thumb.
How much flake food is enough?

However much they can eat in 2-3 mins. some say the eyeball rule but I find it to be false. I have a pictus that eats algae wafers whole that are 3x the size of his eye.

I only feed mine once a day. This is also due in part to me being at work all day lol. Multiple small feedings are never a bad idea though.
