View Full Version : Feeling ready for NPS

05/14/2017, 11:52 AM
I've had my reef going for over a year now. At some point, I would like to start adding some NPS corals like the NPS softies and sun coral. I'm not looking to keep NPS gorgonians, but I may do some photosynthetic ones.

Is it really just a matter of proper flow and supplemental feedings? I'm already adding Reef Roids and live phytoplankton. Is that enough or is there something about their care that I am missing?

The only nps soft corals to try to keep would be chili coral. Chilis should be spot fed with live BBS 2-3 times a week in a reef tank. All others should be left in the ocean. Start off with a Sun coral. Once you get it to open feed it 4-5 times a week with meaty foods like mysis, blender mush or even live Blackworms.
