Red face Sw live corals food

Hello guys. I'm new to all this live corals. I bought a live coral 2 weeks ago. When i bought the coral they told me to buy a ZOOPLANIKTOS-S and LIQUID REEF too. Last week when i went there to buy another live coral they told me to buy a REEF SNOW from BRIGHTWELL AQUATIC. Now my question is do i have to put these 3 liguid at the same time? i have a 10G SW TANK. Thanks a lot. I'm scared that i might over feed the corals.

Most corals will do just fine with getting their food from the water column. feeding is optional.

I havent fed any of my corals and they are all thriving. Just be sure to do your weekly water changes so that the elements that are used up can be replenished.

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Carey is mostly right,depends on the corals you get,some such as her sun polps do need additional feedings.But it does sound like they are wanting your money.Check the corals needs at Liveaquaria.com.
