I have two 4-6" koI fish and I feed them a good amount of food twice a day, but I feel like I don't feed them enough. Btw they eat flakes and sometimes pellets. How much should they be eating?

It depends where you have them (outdoor or indoor) and what temperature they're at. Their metabolism reacts to their environment, the warmer it is the hungrier they will be and the cooler it is the more lethargic they will be. If you're keeping them in the 60s to lower 70s then twice a day should be okay. As it gets warmer, if you're looking to get growth, you can feed them maybe four times a day, provided that their water quality is maintained well.
