View Full Version : what do you feed your corals?

05/06/2017, 05:22 PM
just wondering what would be a good all around coral food or maybe 2-3 good ones (for variety) to feed my corals. i'll list what I have so far. . . .

branching hammer
pulsing xenia
candy cane
green monti cap
red flower pot

Also, how often (without causing algae probs) do you target feed? and which should be target fed?

Once a week San Francisco Reef Plankton. http://m.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=14719

I should rinse first though

Only thing I would feed that list of corals is fish poop and light. The acans I might feed some mysis, but thats about it. The acans are about the only ones you'll get an actual feeding response out of.

ive fed palys (not so much zoas) and hammers and torches , lobos trachys scollys mussa pectina etc generally any food they can fit in their mouths. i mix it up as well , cyclopeze 1 week then red krill another goni powder or reefroids following etc some wont eccept food t o large but there is generally enough supernade to micro feed .

as for pollution target is better than broadcast. in effect , results and less waste.
i guess make sure that there is enough cuc to suit . remember more isnt really better (this will only ever supply a small amount of the requirements but may suplly some things only in foods but needed in small amounts .
more can kill as ive seen it either rot or maybe bind the gut?
never add more than what your exporting , via carbon skimming water changes macro etc etc.
