    Default Feeding Corals?

    Do you feed your corals? If so, what? Does anyone here use Coral Frenzy? Marine Snow?

    There's so much stuff out here. I get totally overwhelmed. I feel like I'm grocery shopping, which is something I truly hate doing. There's just to much junk!

    I feed most of my LPS. Mainly mysis and/or pelleted fish food. I try to feed at least once per week.

    Continued dang fat thumbs!

    I melt and mix all of them together and place in quart bags before freezing flat.

    I have found that a marinade injecting syringe works well for feeding, it's bore isn't too small to clog too much and it's more controllable than the turkey baster I used for a long time

    coral frenzy, cyclopeeze & oyster feast I feed a mix of one of the dry ones (frenzy right now is what I have but have used cyclopeeze) and the liquid I only do it 2 times a week. Not sure it does any good but my coral seem pretty healthy and happy so . . .

    Frozen, IMO
    I make up a mix of most of the things that have already been mentioned and that is what I feed once a day and that is all I feed. For the fish and corals.
