    Welp, right now, I feed DT's Phytoplankton every other day and am planning on cyclopeeze if anyone thinks that will help. I offered the lobo some krill but it was not interested. The fish store guy said to offer meaty food to just the lobo once a week and it may take it, may not.

    I was told the frogspawn is fine with just DT and light...

    What do you all think? I am still light acclimating them so they are in less direct light. I know none of them really require intense lighting but still did not want to shock them. I think I light shocked my pagoda coral. :-/

    Jason, Thanks! It looks like just past the white of the skeleton is a good place?

    Did you use special tools? ;D

    I use a pair of side cutters you would use for cutting large electrical cable.

    I don't target feed any of my LPS. DT's is great for soft corals and Clams but is not food for LPS. I will on occasion slice up a prawn and feed my hammer, frogspawn, and Bubble.
    But what I do regularly is when feeding frozen foods I will not rinse the food before dropping it in the tank. I don't rinse maybe twice a week. I hope the water that is mixed with the mysis or brine has some nutritional value to my corals. But again I'm not sure if it does.

    Yes, Cyclpeeze is good for corals and fish.

    Nice coral John!

    Thanks Craig and Jason!

    I put a little of everything in there...hehe

    I do have a clam, that's why the phyto...I also feed cyclopeeze once a week, frozen mysis, live brine, formula one and formula two (for the tang altho he eats everything!) and occasional flakes.

    Do I have everything covered food wise? I have LPS, xenia, clam, 2 fish, snails, hermits, fire shrimp, brittle star.?
