I have some small pippettes, I guess I could stick my hand in the tank and get it near to each coral?

Or, I can just add the undiluted phyto to the top of the tank and let it fall down, like I do now. Or, I can dilute it with tank water, and then pour that in.

The pippette option would be very fiddly, and something I'd like to avoid doing if possible! I guess that would be the only way to ensure the phyto gets to every coral, but would the other options also be beneficial? Is just adding the phyto to the tank, and letting it circulate going to mean that most get some of it at some point?

OK :p

Well I just turn my PHs off, pour the phyto into the water at the front of the tank (where most of my corals are), and swirl the spoon (plastic) about in the water a bit. I then turn my PHs back on when the phyto has sank.

When I use DT's I just add a few capfuls directly in the top unless Im making my "superbrew" of mysis, cyclopeeze, DT's phyto, and DT's oyster eggs for direct feedings.
