you should get most of you trace elmemnts from your salt depending on what kind u have. wut do u use? you shouldnt really need to feed those corals at all. if you want you could use some liquid plankton supplement once a week or every other week but its not nessecary.

I buy it from the local pet store, they said they get it from the ocean. So i should not put iodine,stronium, or calcium?

PWC`s should handle any trace elements needs. The only exception depending on your marine salt mix might be Calcium. You need to test before you supplement anything.

Assuming you are speaking of Parazoanthus sp., the sun polyps can benefit from weekly/bi-weekly meat additions such as cyclop-eeze, roe, mysis, etc. and the same for your candy cane's. No necessary additions other than maintaining Ca, Alk, and Mag as melosu mentions.
