LiquidLife Bioplankton. One squirt once a week diluted in a small cup of tank water for my 90 and less than ½ of that for my 27. I do this primarily for pods and such, not corals.

Cheers
Steve

DT's is live phyto plankton. Personally I believe it is way over priced since you can grow your own in a closet for vitually nothing. I have not been able to get mine set up yet...so I am still using the store bought stuff. Anyway..its intended to feed filter feeders and such. Some swear by it...some say that it makes no difference at all. I like it and am setting up a drip system for mine so that it will be in the water all the time.

I dont supplment feed my corals but i do add phyto to my tank when I feed my blender mush.

SHHHH. Dont tell the wife but for two tanks I take a small coffee cup full of phyto and thaw out frozen blender mush in it and then I split that amongst my two tanks.

The upside is when you get caught, the house wares become yours.
