guys think i should toss it i will, and buy one off line. i might go with the Cyclop-eeze.
Don't forget you'll need to pay for overnight shipping. That adds about $25-35 to the price.
Sine the LFS
said they shook it, as long as it's not an overpowering smell I would use the phyto you have.
I just want to make it clear none of this is necessary. The coral you have will grow fine w/ good light and water movement. Many time tanks, especially newer tanks, will have algae outbreaks and/or chemistry problems from feeding these foods. I would not recommend feeding micro food to someone just getting started. You have nothing to compare your results to to see if feeding planktons is worth the added nutrients, etc. Keep in mind high nutrient levels cause coral to turn brown- ESPECIALLY SPS
. They are very sensitive to NO3
levels. Cyclop-eeze would be your best bet to start w/ b/c fish such as clowns will appreciate it as well.
