Well you really can't overfeed them. But just make sure what they don't eat take it out asap cuz it will mess up your water. Usually feed them what they can eat in 15min. Try other foods than feeders. Like shrimp, krill, squid, chicken heart, beefheart.

Yep, feed them up when they're small... 3 or 4 feedings a day and give them as much as they will take. For bigger, more colorful fish I'd wean them completely off the feeders and feed them the foods mentioned above instead... :

You dont have to feed them multiple times a day but follow the advice on this thread, dont use only feeders. I like using feeders due to the sheer entertainment value of watching them get killed but otherwise they are not a good food for the fish. I would feed them once a day with the foods mentioned above. Regarding your original post though, you cant overfeed, they will not eat what they dont want.

"you cant overfeed, they will not eat what they dont want."

You ever see a baby p bouncing at the bottom of the tank from being fed too much? looks like fat albert
but I'm with Xenon, shouldn't hurt it.

"and of course the P looks at you and say....I'm not fat ... I'm just big boned"

You know, one can take that alot of ways, especially IF I'm reading it.
