Feeding every once in a while is cool to watch with lps but it just has to be very sparingly. But yes photosynthetic corals don't necessarily need to be fed

I personally would not feed either. They get all they need from the lighting and water column. As mentioned above spend the money for other stuff for your tank.

If you feel the need to do it, spot feed with a syringe. This stuff breaks down into bad stuff very rapidly, use very sparingly or not at all IMO.

Any liquid or powered food that you add to your tank is like adding liquid phosphates...infact that is exactly what it is. There is no need to use any type of food like this if you don't have non-photosynthetic corals.

If you feel the need to spot feed, look into Reef Chili from BRS. I think it's a cleaner product and easy to use.

So you just depend on your light for food for corals
