I've been alternating ZooPlex and ChromaPlex.
Certain corals I'll also target feed with some mysis a couple of times a week.

ZooMax and DTs. Depending on the coral, they will also consume the "meaty" foods given to the tank at feeding time. Of course, light is one of the most important foods.

Why do you guys only use DTs occasionally?

What kind of corals? Different corals eat different things.

As with any food...you can have too much of a good thing. A lot of coral/inverts specific foods will quickly foul your water if given in excess.

I totally agree! I was just wondering about the DTs I thought I was going to find out that they were terrible for the tank of something.

DT's is actually a great food! The only reason I use it occasionally is because well... it's expensive. Lol. I feed phyto about 3 times a week and my corals seem to love it.
