    i have a 120 gallon reef and i just got some reef chili and i was wondering if after you make the mix into the feeder they give you are you supposed to use the whole 1/2 cup every time you feed? if not how much am i supposed to use?

    yes but that only says how to make the mix, not how much of the mix to actually put in the tank. Ugh youd think theyd make this more clear

    It says to use one spoonful of the included spoon for each 20 gallons. Then put the whole solution in the tank by either target feeding or broadcast feeding.

    when i used coral frenzy (very similar) I only used half the amount recommended at a time and only half the frequency it recommended. In the begining, I only did 1/4 of the amount (because that is adding a lot of nutrients to your tank) I would target feed some of my corals and poured the remainder in
