We need more info. It really depends on the tank. What fish, how many, how large, what corals, what you are feeding the fish, etc.

Any pics?

If you feed anything I wouldn't just broadcast feed. I would hand feed. I fed my corals and feed the ones at the LFS I work at New Life Spectrum pellets, they love it.

New life spectrum pellets are great. I use them as well and was surprised when my fish went after the pellets more so than the krill. Mysis is still a favorite though.

My Fungiid eats them up, too.

Also, there's better choices than longnosed hawkfish. As far as heaters go, 100 watt fluvals are nice.

I dont feed my corals. Have not for 13+ yrs now. They get all they need with the lighting and water column.

Some do...but mainly those that lack zooxanthallae. Sun polyps are among them, as are Dendronepthya. Really don't need to target feed any but the most demanding of corals.
