    I saw a post that talked a bit about feeding, so I decided to put together my weekly routine:

    Monday: 1/2 green 1/2 red algae sheet (Rod's Fish Foods) 7:00pm
    Tuesday: 1/2 green 1/2 red algae sheet (Rod's Fish Foods) 7:00pm
    Wednesday: 1/2 green 1/2 red algae sheet (Rod's Fish Foods) 7:00pm
    Thursday: 5-10 large Krill (Rod's Fish Food), 5 cubes of mysis (Ocean Nutrition) 7:00pm
    Friday: 1/2 green 1/2 red algae sheet (Rod's Fish Foods) 7:00pm
    Saturday: 1/2 green 1/2 red algae sheet (Rod's Fish Foods) 1:00 pm & 7:00pm
    Sunday: 1/2 green 1/2 red algae sheet (Rod's Fish Foods) 7:00pm

    My livestock is as follows:
    •(2) B&W Ocellaris clownfish
    •(2) Banggai Cardinalfish
    •(1) Engineering Goby
    •(5) Blue/Green Chromis
    •(1) Vlamingi Tang
    •(1) Sohal Tang
    •(1) Flame Angel
    •(1) Yellow Clown Goby
    •(1) Hi Fin Goby
    •(1) Magnificent Foxface

    Whats yours look like? It would be cool to use this same template. I am not really after discussions back and forth with food. just want to recreate what is above with your personal routine. Thanks

    Chesapeake, Va
    Marine betta
    Solorensis wrasse

    Feeding schedule:
    Frozen spirulina and omega brine whenever the betta begs. Lol but in all seriousness, I never have a set feeding schedule, it really just happens when I feel like it, my corals get more attention for feeding than my fish. Acans get frozen mysis once or twice a week. SPS gets acropower daily and whichever coral food (kobalt, coral frenzy, goniopower, or frozen brine eggs) I pick every three days. The fish pick off whatever is left. The solorensis wrasse steals food from my acans.

    It'll be interesting to see what the people with bigger tanks feed.

    Livestock: (I think)
    (1) Hippo Tang
    (1) Tomini Tang
    (1) Caribbean Tang
    (2) clowners
    (1) purple firefish
    (1) disbar anthias
    (2) Lubbock's Fairy Wrasse (Cirrhilabrus lubbocki)
    (1) Flame hawfish
    (2) clowners

    Daily algae, but thinking about moving to every other day.
    Daily frozen, a mix of the food, no more than 1-2 cubes worth of food. Usually I pick 2 of the frozen foods and mix them together. Nothing planned but portions. I think the variety is good on a living creature, as long as the needs for a comfortable life is met. Today brings a small frozen chunk of fish frenzy along with (2) half cuts of the seaweed salad.

    I feed Spectrum pellets daily and frozen mysis about once a week

    I can't seem to get my fish to eat any algae, it just disentigrates.
