They will over feed but wont eat everything that you put in there. Just put in enough food so that all of it is eaten in 5-10 minutes or so. Any more and the excess food or fish poop will foul up the water quickly.

Yes, they do. They tend to swim away from the food and ignore it or they might just keep eating. Try 1 flake/pellet to see if they are hungry and the put in 3-4 more in. Some good snacks-that can substitute for normal food-are freeze dried shrimp, live brine shrimp, live blood worms and freeze dried blood worms.
