    You are going to want to add some seaweed for the tangs to graze on. Depending on how big the serpent star is, you might need to target feed him some meaty foods on occassion. The same thing goes for the sand sifting star.

    You'll probably want to target feed your goniopora and bubble coral on occasion with meaty foods.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I do hang dry seaweed strips on a clip a couple times a week and target feed the bubble coral and sea stars with raw shrimp twice a week. I have not directly fed the goniopora though.

    Thanks again.

    I would be curious to know what kind of livestock other people on here have and what their regular feeding amounts and schedules are. Would be good for people like me who are relatively new to saltwater and unsure of their feeding methods currently being used to get some ideas from people who have been doing this longer an benefit from their experience and wisdom.

    If everyone with more experience does not mind, would you please share your expertise?

    Great question. You should start a new thread and ask it again!

    Great info!

    Not to sound stupid...and maybe I overlooked this, but did you say you feed your inhabitants all those supplements REGULARLY?

    And as for the QT, you said HIGHER salt? Or that you had a higher square footage of water..(hence warehouse)

    Anyways, should I be using these vitamins regulary?

    I meant a higher amount of gallonage dedicated to marine animals (or square footage too I guess)
