I do not target feed any of my corals. I think it is a good way to get waste to accumulate faster then normal. I feed froozen krill/mysis shrimp twice a week that is soaked in Garlic Extreme and washed with RO/DI water. I also hang seaweed salad just about everyday for the tangs. Twice a week I dump in DT's, which is live marine photoplaynkton for the filter feeders. I am not sure you need to target feed most corals. They just get what is floating around the tank at feeding time...Lando

One more thing...Hey Philly, congrates on the cool rock! You may want to consider switching to mysis shrimp instead of brine. There is much more nutritional value in mysis. Just a thought. Post some pics of the new rock...Lando
