Algae in the corals tissue makes sugars. Good for energy, but not as good for laying down new tissues. I agree that feeding does help, I have seen this in my reef. I use oyster and phytoplankton for this every other day.

Thanks for all the good info!

Agree with Gregg,I add some phytoplankton every third day or so.I also feed some live Artemia nauplil (live brine shrimp)every few days.Corals love it,and I have had more growth since I started doing it.

No offense to anyone,but I will go with experienced advice from people with proven hands on personal results over others.To much conflicting information from the Internet.
Just my opinion.

And what are we? I have over 2 decades doing this. If you don't trust our advise, don't ask for it. Not everything is known in this hobby, so there is room for different opinions. Make up your own mind as to what works for you.

I only have six years,that is why I try to only advise on what I know from my personal experience.That's why I agreed with your answer,because I know you have the knowledge from experience.
New members seem to think because someone has 2000 to 3000 posts that they are experts,even though they have only been doing SW a few months and have had big problems.

I'm getting to the point that I'll just quit trying to help.

Don't do that. Unlike politics today, a debate is where the truth is found out. I have learned a lot in the short time I have been on this forum. Also made a few fishy friends.

Thanks. I used to run ROX 0.8 carbon, but now I run bio pellets.
