Am I underfeeding my fish?

The lady in the aquarium shop told me to feed my six fish once a day so that's what I'm doing. They are only small so I gave them 3 flakes of fish food and at the end of 2 minutes it was all gone, but was that enough? I'm scared of over-feeding my fish but I don't want to underfeed them either! Any advice gratefully received.

I agree.
In the wild, fish burn a lot of energy looking for food.
In the tank, they do not have this need, and need to eat less accordingly.

You are doing fine.

I would just watch to be careful that all 6 fish do get something to eat. But that doesn't mean that I am telling you to feed more, I think it's awesome that you are concerned with the overfeeding issue. keep it up

you are feeding them the right amount but be sure to supplement there diet with other foods... its best to feed frozen foods like bloodworms every once in a while to keep your fishes with good coloration and also makes them happier
