    Just wondering if folks add food to their tank just before lights out or even after lights out for their corals?

    Roger feeds ours shortly after the metal halides go off while the VHOs are still on.

    I will usually spot feed some of my corals after lights out, this is when I see a lot of the feeder tentacles coming out. I only do this once a week or so.

    Yes. Rigth before, or after lights out. Total lights out. I don't target feed though. I just figure they don't get target fed in the ocean and they seem to do OK.
