PH's during feeding?

Simple question, Do you all turn your PH's off during feeding?

I was feeding my damsel the other day and when my two 900 PH's got ahold of the flake food they turned it to shreds!!!

God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!

I do not turn off anything when I'm feeding my fish. Does the ocean turn off its wavemakers when it comes time for the fish to feed?

I do, however, feed out of a turkey baster (used for this ONLY) and target feed my fish. The second it goes into the water, they zoom to it and start "sucking" on it like a baby bottle. Saves a ton of food from being spread all over the place. After they eat for a few min this way, I'll dump the last few specks into the tank so that my crabs have a bit more to chew on.

I will only turn my PH off if im target feeding corals otherwise i leave them on. If using flake food i always soak it in water so it dont just float at the top before i feed...Helps alot!
