Hey guys I had a question. I just got a new SPS frag and was wondering if I just feed that one frag every night by itself will it have any positive effects? I plan to feed reef roids or coral frenzy. Any opinions?

You know my response but I'll say it here so others can read it too. I have not experienced any thing positive from directly trying to feed sps.

I've seen a positive impact on stressed and bleached corals, those whose photosynthesis has been compromised. On healthy corals I've not seen any change positive nor negative.

Generally particularly sps get enough from the water, I do remember brs doing in the 52 weeks of reefing a proper test that showed benefits of reef roids and their product I forget what it's called. And I'm pretty sure they were testing on monti's.

The only thing I would feed my SPS would be live rotifers.

A study showed that sps have a poor rate of capture of rotifers
