Never dose your aquarium with anything that you can't test for when it comes to additives. In this case, this is a liquid food. These are basically liquid phosphates. None of your corals require any type of feeding, so you are only fowling up your water column. I would stop using this before it leads to bigger issues down the line without providing any benefits.

star polyps grow like weeds with out feeding , most corals get what they need from the water, yes the more experienced reefers dose but they also test the water and have a better understanding of what there doing , I tried dosing but not knowing everything I needed to know I killed everything , I feel more comfortable just with the basics .
everything thrives , so I can't complain.

I don't feed mine either. 17+ years and they get all they need from the lighting and water column.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
