What's your main goal when it comes to feeding? Getting the fish fatter? Managing nutrients for corals? What type of frozen are you feeding?

If the fish are very fat and a bit too on the chubby side, you could slow it down. On the opposite side, if you have very skinny fish (pay attention to the boxfish), then you should ramp up your feedings.

How much nori is "a little"? And how many tangs do you have? Contrary to what some youtubers say, cowfish do need meat in their diet and cannot just subsist off of nori.

I'm a big fan of just feeding heavily in general. Feed a lot. Add nori in the morning, and if they're done with it by the time you get back, replace it with more, etc.
