Wow, that's a large setup.
Notice a difference int hose 8 months of use?
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.
I hear people argue constantly about lighting for growth, yet not many feed sps. Some research shows at least some sps grow dramatically even while using water directly from the sea. While not directly linked to oysterfeast there are enough people that report sps eating it to consider it a good food.
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.
