It's very non complicatedHow do you guys determine how much to feed each system? I'd imagine it must be complicated having so many fish spread between all these separate tanks.
Before we go home, we put two cups in the refrigerator for the next day. One with frozen mysis and the other with frozen artemia. Together with some newly mixed saltwater.
Then we do two feedings a day, morning and afternoon, in all tanks with fish, or corals that eat mysis or artemia.
We all do the feedings, and I'm pretty sure they differ from person to person. So the fish doesn't get the exact same amount every day.
I don't rinse the food, some of my colleagues do, for example.
The amount in the cups has increased slowly over the last years. It's not that much I think, but enough for keeping our fish alive and well for more then ten years(in many cases). I haven't measured the amount of food we feed daily. 1/3 of a cup each, approximately.
Then there's other routines for the animals eating larger stuff like shrimps and mussels.
Sorry for a long answer..
