Yea figuring out feeding can be a pain, I would at least feed them once a day, I know some people skip 1 day every week. I have read stuff that says what they can eat in 2 - 3 minutes and multiple times a day, all that got me was high nitrate levels. I would say once a day with an amount you feel right with.
On a similar note, ever since I got my Emerald Catfish I have been feeding sinking pellets too, the problem is EVERY FISH likes them, as soon as the flake food is gone everyone heads to the bottom for their second feeding, which of course is only meant for the Emerald Catfish in the tank. And by when I mean everyone, my Platys of course, Guppys, my Gourami loves them, hell even my Otos come off the side of the tank and plants and start feeding off the gravel with everyone else!!!! So I feed 1-2 mins of flakes and 3 pellets that have been broken apart so the Gourami doesn't push my catfish out of the way to get to the pellet.
I don't know if my feeding is right, but so far no one is starving or overly fat (besides the pregos).
