    Husky-I got my order today and the bottle came with it. I didn't specifically order it. I just ordered the smaller size and it came too. Just thought I'd let you know.

    Your reef and fish are gonna love it. The way I use it is I make sure skimmer and filters are off but my flow pumps stay on. I mix about 4 scoops with tank water and squirt a little in the tank to get everyone in a feeding frenzy. After about 20 minutes I spot feed my coral then put the rest in. I leave the skimmer and filter off for an hour or so. I do this twice a week with one time at night after the lights have been off for hours. I have no nitrates or phosphates in my 36 gallon with no sump so dont be scared to use a little extra. HTH

    Thanks for the tip Dennis! I fed today and I guess I had it envisioned that everything would go nuts (think I had it overrated in my head lol). I did not do that sequence though. I do notice my corals seems very happy this evening. :)

    My fish dont really get excited but my corals know when its feeding time. Try it just like I do and see if there's a difference. Can't wait to see your corals in 2 months

    Not to get totally off-topic from the reef-chili, but to continue Todd's point.

    For frozen food, oh yeah, tank goes NUTS for this stuff! Limpit is also an extremely nice guy, has a great video channel on youtube. I'll give him a shameless plug LimpitsReef youtube channel
    I've bought the buffet at swaps and when he sells them there, he always donates part of the proceeds to the wounded warrior project.

    That's good information to know about the donation part. I did look up Todd's recommendation (he knows his stuff :)), it just costs so much for shipping frozen food. You all are lucky that Limpet is up in your part of the states :)
