Light and that's it there should be enough nutrient in water column without adding these products. To much feeding could lead to algae outbreak. Decent lighting will keep them happy.

I feed my corals when I feed my fish and inverts and its pretty much the same. Mysis, brine, etc etc. I do use reef nutrition phyto once a week. Other then that nothing special other then 2 part dosing.

Don't let all the hype of all these products get to you. Most of it isn't needed. I learned the hard way but IMO a lot of what they sell us useless and just causes water quality issues.

Again this is just my opinion and based solely on my own experience with certain products.

Your corals will get some of the food you feed your fish. Then your lights will take care of the rest

+1 on the no need to feed. my zoa polyps & Duncan grab food as it goes by which is entertaining but no need to spot feed. I feed frozen mysis. mushrooms seem to get what they need from lighting
