I know overfeeding has been brought up hundereds of times, but I want your opinions if i'm overfeeding my tank. Fish included are:
1. Orange Shoulder Tang 3"
2. Sailfin Tang 2.5"
3. (3) Green Chromis 1.5"
4. (2) Pyjama Cardinals 1.25"-1.5"
5. Scooter Blenny 2.5"

On an average day i'll feed them 1 cube of Brine Shrimp and 1 cube of Plankton, several times till gone. I always supplement something else with the brine shrimp b/c of it's nutritional values. Instead of plankton, i'll use Krill, Mysids, Blood worms and sometimes Cyclops, and Flake ocassionally.

But normally 2 cubes, no garlic.

The tangs get dried red seaweed about 2" x 3" every night.

I do spot feed, i'm sure there's pieces of brine and whatnot settling on the bottom but not for long, the tangs hunt it down. All the fish gather at the spot I feed and wait for the food, sometimes I think i'm underfeeding? LMK your opinions.
