    test all parameters and post Pics will help and what your system is will also help. I don't think feeding is the only problem. More info is definatly needed.

    I have used some stuff called coral frenzy. I don't use it much cause it makes my skimmer go haywire. But it is supose to have rotifiers in it , its what coral crave. But it does seam to get them going.
