Sounds like too much to me but I err towards underfeeding. How long does it take them to completely finish the amount you give them twice a day?

Hello Bof...

The typical aquarium fish has a stomach the size of one of its eyes. So, that may tell you how much to feed. An adult fish that's fed a little variety once a day is fine. You can even include a fasting day once a week. This will encourage the fish to forage around the tank for a piece of uneaten food and do its part to keep the tank clean. A slightly hungry adult is a healthier fish.

Does sound like too much . I feed my Corys every other day and I do it after lights out so they have a better chance to get it . I feed my other fish once daily and fast them one day a week . Like BBradbury said it keeps them looking for leftovers and a little hungry....lol
