Brine shrimp (live or frozen), frozen Formula 2, and possibly krill would be foods to try beyond what you are offering now for the fish. For the corals, zoo plankton, coral plankton, baby brine shrimp, phyto plankton... all should be rotated to be sure everything is getting enough of what it needs. The fish should be able to finish the food you put into the tank within 1 - 2 minutes. A small amount reaching the bottom for the blenny is acceptable, but if there is 10% settling into the sand I would call that too much. Check your water quality. Where are ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and pH levels at? Excess food will show up there, too.
(When working with the frozen formula food, the fish will eat it best in very small chunks but the corals will also eat it if it is crumbled and let to circulate in the water column)
Be on the lookout for excessive algae growth and cyano bacteria growth. Both can become issues if the tank is overfed.
