When I had full grown fish I fed 1X daily. Now I have a tank full of juvenilles so I feed 2 or 3X daily.

Twice daily too, with the battery operated automatic feeder.

Occasionally I hand feed them decapsulated brine shrimp eggs to supplement their diet.

Whenever I remember. Usually once a day or every other day.
I started out twice a day, now I'm too busy with other stuff.

Edit: I also vary the foods, sometimes omega one, frozen or freeze dried blood worms, mysis shrimp, crushed shrimp pellets, algae wafer, baby brine shrimp, frozen cyclopeeze. I might lack the daily feedings, but make up for it with the nice balanced diet

Once a day, flake food, skip feeding every fourth or fifth day. Sinking tabs for the bottom feeders 3 tabs every 2-3 days.
