ok, maybe the guy at the fish store told me the wrong thing/ or lied. will putting too much biopellets in the reator harm anything, cause i accidentally pour too much in it.
BTW, so zooplankton is an important food source (without it ,corals die), right?

Flow rate will depend on the pump and you really need a way to measure it.

Some tanks will provide enough food for most corals, but it depends on the fish, the tank, the corals, and a little luck.

The bio-pelletes need to be tumbling, not stagnant. Flow is very important. I have either a MH600 or MJ900 running mine. The Phosban 150 comes with a valve that you connect on the outflow side to control the flow. Mine is about 2/3 open.

Many folks do NOT use zooplankton or any supplemental feeding for their sps corals. I personally feed about once a week with 2-3 additons to my normal tank feeding.
