How often should I feed my corals?

Currently I have a Blue and red Acan, a green brain coral, palm tree polyps, and two toadstool leather frags. I've been giving my acan and brain corals mysis once every day. Is this too much? How often should I feed them?

There is no reason to feed photosynthetic corals. They will get all they need from your light source. This will prevent you from fouling up your water quality.

As above really some LPSs such as Trumpets , doughnuts ,Duncan, elegance , Acans ,and probably a few more ,I found the response of feeding and can help accelerate growth but you don't have to feed them to keep them happy or to sustain life ,but there is one that springs to mind Which are sun coral which need to be fed daily if not more to survive.
