My fish say no to crack, do yours?

Based on the rave reviews I've seen on cyclop-eeze (I've even seen it called fish crack, hence the thread title), I went out and bought both the freeze dried and the frozen version of cyclop-eeze. I've fed it twice and so far my skimmer likes it and that is about it, there is no noticable reaction from my corals (although I have not target fed it to them) and my fish seem to ignore it, although I think the clown thought about it tonight. So do your fish actually eat this stuff and if so what specied, when I cracked the lid on the freeze dried, my first thought was this is too small for my fish.

I used the freeze dried decopod version. I mix it with some mysis and BioMarine. The fish and corals definately go nuts. I use it soley to feed my sharknose goby. My tubastrea opens in seconds. Without adding the cyclop-eeze, the tubastrea will usually take it's sweet time when the food is added without it.

Interesting you mentioned the skimmer. If I add too much, it will easily pull a full gallon out of the tank. 8O

Might try the flake version if you've gotten no response from the straight decopods.

Cheers
Steve

Why wouldnt you turn your skimmer off while feeding it if the skimmer pulls it out?

'Cause the first time I used it I didn't foresee the possible problem. Never the less, as long as I do not add to much, I don't need to fuss with adjusting it

Cheers

Based on recent posts here I bought some of the frozen at my lfs last Saturday. I've only fed once. The fish seemed to go nuts (but they do anytime I put food in the tank), but the particles seemed too small for them to find. So I dropped a larger piece that was still frozen and my tang and foxface went after it. I don't think they particularly liked the frozen aspect but it quickly thawed and got pushed around by the currents. I think the skimmer got most of it. No corals yet (just some shrooms and ricordea).

Last night was only the second time I fed it and it didn't occur to me to shut itoff, I don't shut it off when I feed other foods.

If they are not gonna eat it, I think I would rather the skimmer remove it than have it sit in the sand and rot.
