I don't bother with zoas, mushrooms, leathers, etc. Your just putting way too many nutrients into the water column trying to feed these.
I agree with this. Zoas and mushrooms are really efficient corals and can easily exist without active feeding. Look at your corals at night with a flash light. If they have polyps deployed, they are looking for food. No harm if you carefully and occasionally target feed them, but most of the stuff like oysters are liquid phosphates in a bottle, so use sparingly.
