The pinned post mentions feeding Cyclops-eez to sun coral however seems it has been discontinued. What is the alternative?

Cycles-eez would only be suitable for very small or young Sun corals. If this is the case you can use mysis, BS, or any other finely chopped food. I use live BBS to feed the young Sun corals that pop up around my tank.

And for the larger polyps is just mysis fine?

They will also eat chopped up shrimp, clams and squid but the pieces should be very small.

I just ordered some TLF Calan-eeze after reading an article on reef builders about it. It's dry so it needs to be rehydrated, but I figured it's worth a shot

Out of curiosity am I the only one using Fauna Marin dry food like LPS pellets and zoa/ricordia powder instead of frozen?

No, I'm using their Ultra LPS grow + color along with New Era Marine Pellets, the soft ones. Dry is just much easier to use. Frozen is given as a treat once a week or so.
