    I have mostly LPS and softies and I don't feed all that often. Granted, I think a healthy feeding program is definitely the best option, I feel my corals get enough through overfedding and a huge pod population including a healthy mysis shrimp population in my tank. That being said, I rarely feed, once every few weeks I spot feed a piece of mysis, shrimp, or even crab pellets. Alot, as previously stated, depends on how much growth you want. If I feed weekly, I can literally watch some LPS grow, but I'm happy how my tank is, and don't really want too much to grow out to fast. I know I'm a freak in that theory, but I like my fish more than the corals.;) But, I think it boils down to how healthy your pod population is, feeding habits, stocking, and what corals. They'll tell you if they're happy or not;)

    ohh yeah, little buggers come out at night when most corals feed and get caught! Thats why I don't feed a ton, I can go up at night and see the corals eating stuff thats there. Granted I spent a nice amount of cash seeding the tank with everything I could find.
