Feeding corals

Hello I've been keeping a reef for some time and I'm just looking to get opinions from other people what they feed there corals what works best! My coral list is
Frogspawn, pulsating Xenia green star polyps dragon eye polyps and other polyps. What would you feed these guys! I have food I feed them but I want to see what other people would first!

Nothing. None of those really eat. No photosynthetic corals need additional feeding. It just mucks up the water

As the above poster said.

i dont feed my corals except for my duncans on a very limited basis. It just makes your parameters get screwy and the corals you have will be just fine with just the light they receive.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

All they need is the lighting and water column.

I'll feed my euphies a mysis or 2 when I feed the tank mysis which is about once every other week. Z's and P's don't need to be fed. The only coral I feed regularly are my sps ( and not everyone agrees on this either)

I target feed my SPS corals Zooplankton by Brightwell Aquatics. My purple tip frogspawn responds to it very well too.

I feed my corals (when I remember) to try to get them to grow faster, but on a limited basis to keep a low nutrient system.
