Coral feeding question

Is feeding corals necessary if there is ample quality light present, barring non-photosynthetics. Or is this a more species specific requirement? I know most softies don't really need it, but I'm meaning LPS and SPS.

If you have fish and feed them, the corals will get all they need from the fish waste.

I know some say you don't need to- but I feed phyto and I see very nice growth in my tank.

In my tank, I only feed my duncans. I know that I don't need to...it is just too cool.
