I have a 60 gal
reef tank/15 gal
sump which I keep lots of corals, mostly mushrooms polyps, xenias and others for about 2 months now. I have a good set up, with good light(120W LED
's), chiller, good protein skimmer, phosphate reactor... All water parameters read fine on a constant base, nitrates and nitrites are 0( I do not have fish at the moment, I moved my 8 y.o. maroon clown to a hospital tank after he showed some ich spots-thinking the ich came with some coral frags, not sure-). All corals(specially xenias) have been showing very good health, and have good color and size.
I have been feeding them phytoplankton/zooplankton/reef snow in moderate quantities everyday(the reef snow target fed). I also have been dosing Seachem AquaVitro's Fuel 2x a week. I have been feeding that often because I have for a while now not seen any sign of nitrates in the system.
Is that too often to feed the corals? Would there be any issues feeding them everyday other than nitrate levels to rise?
Based on the amount of skimmate that comes from the protein skimmer, I think there is not that much "waste" in the system, compared to when I had fish...
Anyways, any opinion would be very appreciated! Would like to know what are the feeding schedules used by others with good results!
Thank you for the hand!
