Feeding?

OK how many times a day are you guys feeding. Me once usually. Maybe twice. However I have lost two fish in the last week or two and the only thing I could contribute it to is lack of feeding.?. The first had been in the tank about 6 months and the other had been about a month to two. Both were fine when I left for work one day and then dead that evening.?. No noticeable increase in bad stuff.

in my 20, i almost never feed it...

its just got one lil goby who eats pods i assume... and crabs / shrimp that eat what ever they eat... and an urchin that eats algae...

if they didnt have any C.S.I. marks then id look to chemistry....

I feed mysis and a few small pieces of frozen krill once in the a.m. before going to work; even in the dark, which pleases by banjaii cardinal and the coral banded shrimp. In the evening I feed the same amount, but I stretch it out through out the evening if I'm around. Think about it. In the wild fish cruise the rocks and munch or filter feed in the water column all day long. Sure some fish like frogfish and eels grab a belly full of food only every couple of days, but I'm a believer in feeding much and skimming and changing water often. No starving fish here, and no water problems either.
