Food for corals

Hi there. I have recently purchased a daisy polyp and a zoas. I working with the daisy on where in the tank it likes to be, but the zoas doesn't seem to care. I'm wandering if I should supplement any food for my coral? What is DT? Does anyone recommend? Any thoughts or input would be appreciated.

I don't feed my zoas directly. I throw in some food for filter feeders, but it isn't directly intended for them.

You don't need to feed them directly they will feed from the left over / floating food that you give your fish ( That of course if you have any fish in there).

What kind of food do you use for filter feeders?

No feeding is needed for them. They get all they need from the lighting and water column.

Any food added to the tank for them is just helping pollute your water.
