Question Sun Coral Keeps Asking for Food

So, I just brought home my 90g tank on Wednesday, and the sun coral keeps asking for food. At his old home, he was only being fed once or twice a week. I fed him frozen mysis shrimp Thursday and today, but he keeps wanting more. One of his polyps is actually to tear some hair algae off of a rock to eat, so should I feed them more, or could he get sick from eating too much? I'm thinking of giving him spirulina brine shrimp and some chopped up silversides for his next meal. Anyways, thanks for the help!

Once a day is probably ideal.

Yeah, I tried feeding them twice a day a few times and they don't seem to do quite as well. Their tummies (or whatever they have) get too full, and it makes them a bit sluggish, if that makes any sense. Back to once a day for us!
