Feed more... if your corals respond bad then try something else. They might surprise you. Mine certaintly did.
Thanks for reply. My other concern is that I have a six line wrasse in my reef tank. I don't know if I should move him out of tank since he's eating all the pods :/ which I think it the whole reason for the dirty method right? To increase pods.
