yeah mine do not eat as much as they used to....I think every other day works well for me too. No hesitation in eating when I do it every other day.

I think if I feed them everyday they don't seem as hungry when I feed them. They like to play around with the food, chewing on it then spitting it out. So I feed every other day and it seems to work fine.
