    I've had no issues with the oyster feast directly. I've had the usual algae issues but nothing serous. I have read that they are an extremely high quality food but I use it in moderation. I think its like anything you put in your tank, there is a downside if you overdo it.

    Any noticeable positives regarding the coral?

    Good question Kevin. I've mostly been on auto pilot with the feeding. Been consistent so I have nothing to compare their condition with. I've only been at this for less than a year and not entirely successful with all corals so I can't give a long term report on whether oyster eggs in particular are good. I just go by the strategy of feeding a mixture in moderation. It may take a while before I can really say one food makes a difference.

    Yes it was the oyster feast really helped with polyp extension and I felt like it helped with coloration and growth

    I use it myself and I like it. The corals respond well to it. Good product IMO.

    My LFS guy recommended I try it in my tank. He talked me out of buying something more expensive so I am giving it a shot. Have not been using it very long at this point but i know my sps and lps have excellent PE when i use it. I don't really measure any out, i am awful at sticking to measurements on things. I have had no algae issues other than my long term cyano issue which i had before I started using it. I haven't had noticeable growth but i think this is due to an issue with my alk which i think is related to the salt I am using.
