Some feed once a day and skip a day each week. I have one tank where I feed only 5 out of seven days... but sometimes someone else feeds them when I am not looking I think. I don't see any reason to feed more than once a day unless you just like to, it can easily lead to overfeeding issues.

Someone here said that a hungry fish is a healthy fish. I tend to agree.

Something that made me realize just how little fish really need was my Betta Oscar going on a hunger strike. I don't know why but he didn't eat anything I tried to feed him for 30 days and I could never tell that he hadn't eaten. I even had him in isolation for a good part of that so, while he might have been eating stuff off of plants, he wasn't getting any waste food from the other fish. Right up to the day he started eating again he looked as healthy as the day he stopped.

Now he's back to being a pig.
