The phytoplankton is really for very specific creatures. I keep a live culture of it myself for filter feeders and use it frequently but most people have no use for it.

For low bioload coral tank, you don't need to feed. I would say you need to dose phyto if you had a tank covered by zoanthids or other filter feeders... But with only this in the tank I won't dose anything. You will end up resulting excess nutrients.
