    Cool, thanks for sharing!

    Now if only we knew how much or how often a feeding response could be triggered... In these examples, as Im sure we'd have to do in our systems, the corals were spot fed.

    Also, where does one buy zooplankton? I know phyto is readily available or home-cultured, but the itty bitty animals, not so much.

    Thanks for posting Jamie. It makes sense to me. Why have a mouth and stinging tentacles if not to capture and consume food.

    well I guess reef chili and coral frenzy contain zooplankton.. but it's all freeze dried of course.
