    We just added another gorgonian to our NPS tank and it is doing great already. We feed variety of food to our NPS tanks, including, phyto, cyclopeeze, oyster feast, coral freenzy, rotifers, and reef pearls.

    this is our new one we picked up Sunday. It is red with white polyps

    great looking corals Schackmel

    not sure if you mentioned it
    but do you feel changing water is an important aspect of nutrient control in the NPS set up?



    LOL?

    I'm curious about the timing, volume, and strategy of for feeding. If you've posted that elsewhere, please point me in the right direction.
