    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.

    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 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.
