    I'm just curious to see what other people are feeding their corals and trying to find new and better products.

    I use Kent Marines Chromaplex, Zooplex and Phytoplex as well as DT's phytoplankton. I dose 2-3X's per week.

    I feed twice a week. Thursdays I mix a "Marine Gumbo soup". Anything and everything I have. Silversides, brine shrimp, cyclops sp., coral nutrition mix, phytoplex, ON's squid.

    How's the Zooplex and DT's working for you? My acan is getting extremely fat. :tongue4:

    My corals really seemed to like the DT and I have no complaints about the kent marine products. I do feed my corals meaty produts when I feed my fish frozen foods. Pieces are always getting taken up.

    I cut the air off on the skimmer for like an hour and just let it float in the tank. It gets a good feeding response.

    O.S.I. marine flakes, Roti-Feast and Tigger Pods from Reef Nutrition, DT's oyster eggs, Sweetwater brand zooplankton, and home made phytoplankton. I feed phyto every day and feed one or two of the other foods mentioned every other day.

    I have no idea whether or not you can feed this coral meats because I have no idea what this coral is? Can you post a picture?
