    Proably less load than feeding frozen

    HI,
    My guess is you'll have a slight bacteria bloom that last a day or two and its done, they will feed on the protein and wind up in the skimmer.
    Just watch for any change in KH after a day or two..

    milk has alot of calcium, protiens, and vitamins. if anything an overabundance of nutrients entered the tank. may even be good for the corals. if it works out for ya let me know, may ill start dosing milk.

    I wouldn't cry over it.

    (I'm really sorry. I just had to. . . )

    Let's hope the corals aren't lactose intolerant.


    Seriously though, I hope everything works itself out fine.

    Just keep your tank tightly closed and refrigerated. OK, enough. . . .

    And no pictures of missing people on the short sides. I'm through. .

    And. . .. .. ..LOL

    Just want to say it is very important to teach your kids to look dont touch and never get close to our tanks with any liquid due to the fact if it can happen it will happen
