I don't really feed anything besides the torch. I give each mouth a mysis shrimp once a week. I believe, most of the time, corals will get what they need from the water column.

so would flake food work for corals? i understand the importance of different type of food. i have frozen mysis shrimp, bloodworms, brine shrimps, etc. but due to my job requirement, i need to travel every now and then, usually >1week. so my entire tank needs to stay alive on flakes that i put in the automatic feeder while i'm gone, which is reason why when i pick fish, they need to be willing to accept pellets or flakes.

I guess my point was, you don't really need to feed them... As far as I know, I'm still knew as well.

Coral get there food from the water column and the algae that lives in side them, feeding your fish gives them plenty to eat

Thanks for the confirmation grizz... I've done my fair amount of research, but I still don't feel comfortable giving out saltwater advice if I'm not positively sure of the answer... Thanks again!
