Mine get fed twice per day (except for young fish, who get three squares a day), and honestly I don't pay a whole lot of attention to the "as much as they can eat in x minutes" rule. Once you've had the fish a while, you generally get used to their eating habits. In most of my tanks, plenty of flake hits the floor anyway just because of the water flow in the tank, but I've got plenty of bottom feeders who clean up anything that gets to the bottom. Beware of overeating fish, though. Bettas will keep begging for food and will eat themselves to death. I'm pretty sure my Jack Dempsey would keep eating until he popped, if I let him.
