What are you going to feed the brine too? Not the best nutritional food source for any fish unless newly hatched naplii. For meat eaters I would suggest mysis, krill, silversides and other shellfish species.

Cheers
Steve

What do you normally feed the fish?

Considering the fish you have, whatever you feed them should allow some of the foods to secondarily feed the corals as well. The anemone will have no problem catching whatever floats by and does not need direct feedings, especially with the lighting you have.

Cheers
Steve

I'd skip the brine altogether but the other foods are fine. You may just need to puree them into smaller bits if needed but those foods will feed the corals just fine.

Cheers
Steve

Translation?

IME/IMO brine is a completely wasted food source in a marine tank unless heavily fortified or newly hatched naplii. They simpley do not have enough usuable proteins to provide anything with real food value on their own.

Who is it on here that says feeding brine shrimp is just like feeding potato chips to your fish? FF, I think...
