What plankton foods to you prefer to feed?

I'm now feeding DT. What other quality foods are out there for corals, filter feeders and the like? TIA.

I just started using Cyclop-eeze. Everything seems to really enjoy it, especially LPS corals. For more info http://www.freezerbar.com/

I feed phyto, marine snow as well as cyclops. I alternate and only feed it about every other day.

I personally think the zooplankton food stink! I can't imagine eating them, but the fish like them...

I use the marine snow and cyclops as well as some dry food now and again when I am in a rush and cant stop to feed the little buggers.

Are each of these refrigerated? if not, shouldn't I stick with the refrigerated versions to keep live stuff alive?

I thought that the refridgeration killed them...

One that I use is refridgerated, the other is frozen.

kents phytoplankton doesn't need refridgerated, marine snow does. I have two forms of cyclops. One frozen, one freeze dried.
