I only feed 3 times a week twice with flake and once with frozen. Depending on who you ask feeding most corals is unnecessary, but I feed all of my LPS once a week. I stopped for awhile and I feel I noticed a difference, but that's a debatable subject. I think most though will agree feeding everyday is a bit much, unless you have amazing filtration.

I don't think you mentioned, what are you using for filtration?

Ok so every other day is lots! That's good, I will slow down the feeding! That works for me.

How often do you test your nitrates, you're feeding a lot of fish a lot of food. What is your water change schedule?
