How do you tell if you're feeding enough?
I'm starting to get a little paranoid about how much I feed my 2 ocellaris. I feed once a day, alternating flakes and various frozen (mysis, formula 1, etc.) I give a pinch of flakes or a few scrapings from a cube--not much at all. They run around like idiots eating for a couple of minutes and then that's it. Some food settles to the floor, but not a whole lot; they will pick off the bottom at times.
Anyway, when I look at other people's feeding questions it seems like I'm not giving them very much. . . they are always ravenously hungry and begging, but they were like that when I fed 2x a day, as well. They seem fine--active and alert, no pinched tummies or anything . . .
So how do you tell when you are feeding just the right amount?
