feeding amounts

Out of interest, and to see if I'm on par with amounts. I feed my Clowns a varied diet, their usual choice being Shrimp pellets. I also feed them frozen bloodworms and they accept flake as well. My only concern is how much I should be leaving for them. I usually feed them before I turn of their light as they seem to become more adventurous at that time. I need to populate my tank in order to make the clown brigade feel more at home. They have become rather adventurous lately, and hopefully that will continue to increase. I find though that in feeding them at lights out, I'm uncertain as to how much they will eat. The food is always gone come morning and when I get home from work, but I have no clue how long it took for them to eat it. I have three right now (with two more planned). Could anyone shed some light as to how much they feed their clowns?

Thanks all,
