No need to feed. They'll be fine without it

Your duncan is the only one that may need to be fed I watch mine when I feed my fish and if they don't get food I target feed them once a week. You will be able to tell when it eats it closes up in a ball. When you clean your glass you are actually releasing food for the other coral in the tank so no reason to feed them. Make sure there is no chemical warfare between your duncan and your leathers.

I have never target fed my tank in 13 yrs now. They get all they need from the lighting and water column. The only coral I had to feed is orange sun polyps I had. That`s only because they dont benefit from the lighting.

With the Nova extreme you *might* be able to keep a green birdsnest, but I'd watch it carefully. And only placed at the top

Sounds like you have this planned out! That's definitely a good thing. As I'm sure you will keep the cycle posted with us here so we can help if you run into any trouble.

Obviously you're getting a test kit before you're cycle right? API SW master?
