Personally I don't think your corals (depending on type) will get much out of DT's or Marine snow. I agree with what reefrunner has suggested and rely moreso on bolstering the natural zooplankton population via phytoplankton. I do not use any type of prefab "liquid foods" like Marine Snow, Microvert or the like. They add nothing tangible for the corals and easily pollute the water. Blender mush will pollute just as easily if overused but will have far more benefit with carnivorous corals less
the preservatives. I would not rely on the hopes of natural zooplankton being the sole source of your corals protein but every bit helps.
I do not use DT's as I have typically had bad luck with product "freshness" but instead have been using LiquidLife BioPlankton
with very good results. It is a liquid concentrate and you add the water.
