What are the thoughts on Oyster Feast?
snake oil and phosphate builder or useful and worthwhile?
I love it. IMO, one of the best foods for starving SPS and filter feeders.
I used it about a year ago when my coral were and saw good results, but I also added more fish and dosed amino acids to my system. As such, I'm not sure which (maybe all three) contributed to my results.
How much do you dose per gallon and how often?
I think it just fouls my tank.
I used it a lot and always had great results just be careful because like any other food to much will raise phosphates and nitrates
I anticipated a wide range of responses lol. How much and how often did you dose?
Hoe much did you use per day/week? i think I was using 1 ml/day last year.
I was using it in a large scale frag tank a little over 400 gallons with all kinds of corals I would feed 2 cap fills twice a week also some phytoplankton and some larger meaty foods for some of the LPS. When I feed I would also turn off the skimmer for a few hours
I've been using it for about 8 months. I just add a few drops along with kent phyto, rotifers, and cyclopseze, all in low quantities to about 1/4 cup of tank water. of this mixture , I shoot about 1 ml at the corals. I usually only use about 1/3 of the mixture in a feeding. Lately I have been adding 1/2 cube of mysis to the mixture. Then I turn on the powerheads and let it circulate.I give them a squirt every 2-3 days. I don't know if this is the right way to handle feeding. I'd rather underfeed than overfeed. I'd like get some input on this too.
