    You talking about cyclop eeze? If so, that's more for filter feeders.

    Not sure.
    I actually squirted some of that in this morning. Just started using it.
    Funny thing is now that I have fish, the rics are doing fine, I suppose from the food flying around in there every night. How are yours?

    Cyclopeeze is good, but Coral Plankton is best for softies. Cyclopeze should be fine for your Ricordea.

    Any tricks to keep fish away?
    Maybe an upside cup or something?
    Been a while since I fed mine, now I have fish including a wrasse.

    An upside down cup with a hole in the top to accomodate a turkey baster works well!

    Feeding Liquidlife BioPlankton, CoralPlankton, and Marine Plankton along with mysis gives food too small for fish to be eaten by corals.

    Have you guys ever tryed that reef chilli? I got some from ebay but he also has a website. My soft corals with polyps really ate it up. Every polyp on my Gorgonias closes with food in their mouths when I shake up some in a jar and pour it in the tank.
