It's like a supplement for corals and other things. It's stuff that they feed on.

Don't dose what you can't test for is what people are going to tell you. Most corals will get enough of the plankton at night

I can really tell what it is exactly, looks like a leather coral of some type, but I could be wrong!

That's Kenya tree. Don't add the phyto, the corals don't need it. It will just turn into excess nutrients.
