You might have to target feed some right?

The food is in the water column and the coral feeds from light water. No real need to get the food on the coral. Target feeding is not required for all corals. I target feed my candy cane and Lobo brain when I feed my clam but I don't think it is necessary. I did not do it before I got my clam.

Just make sure some of the food is blended into small pieces.

As for whats in it, all the items or a few of the items will work. Typically depends on what fish you have. Might not need a lot of seaweed if you don't have any grazers. Just depends. You are looking for a balanced meal

Blend it all up, put it in ziplock bags, lay it out flat so that the mush is very thin. Then when it is frozen, you can just break off pieces. Some flake food can be added to thicken the mush if it's to thin and Selcon can be used in place of Zoe. When feeding, remember a little goes a long way
where do I get garlic oil and zoe .???
TIA

A little bit goes a very long way
Oh, yes. I made some blender mush for the first time and added about 1/4 pound of each item. The total came up to about 1.5 pounds. It filled three very large zip-lock bags. That was 4 months ago and I've hardly put a dent in the first bag... this stuff is going to last for years. I'm wondering if it will still be okay to use after such a long time.
