Ok, my digi cam is down but managed to pop into lfs today and the owner said that it wont open up so to speak for 2-3 days, well thats how long it took in there tank.

I am fine with the whole waiting ages before an anenome ... there expensive lol. Can I added a clwon before an anenome is added though?

And of course more corals.

You're right, I was too general. Many low-light corals eat microscopic foods as you said. Each one has it's own particle size prefrence range. Some like larger particles than others. Some can catch larger pieces. The zooplankton also eat these microscopic particles, so the population of pods is reflective of the nutrients available in the water colum wether the coral you have eats them directly or not.

Most do. SPS and the like will eat pods in the sense that when pods reproduce they create plankton and provide a natural food source. Hence the success and popularity of tanks using LR and refugiums. Very few, if any, corals are autotrophic. Most feed on something more than just the sugars produced by their zooxanthellae.
