Looks like we need to get busy buying stuff from there, or just support our LFS and have them order for us

When do you guys feed your corals?

Morning before lights come on.

During the photoperiod.

Evening before lights out.

After lights out.

I'm sure there is no hard and fast rule just curious. I've been target feeding mine around 6 pm during the photoperiod. I'm not getting much polyp extension but I am seeing a lot of new growth.

Thanks in advance,

Dav-

I feed mine in the evening while the lights are still on. This is mainly because that is when I am home :) I generally sprinkle some reef roids in the tank while the pumps are on to "wake up" the corals. Then I start thawing the frozen food. When that is thawed, I turn off the pumps and target feed.

Oh woe is me. I have veered from the righteous path of the Reef Roids. I ran out of them, and I was putting in an order with Drs F&S (for some other sutff I needed). But lo, they did not carry the red powdery goodness. So instead I got some Coral Frenzy to try (it says it has oyster larvae in it).

It is a much finer brown powder than the Roids .... I tried some last night and it clouded up the tank a lot more than the Reef Roids ever did. Will let you know if in the end I like it, but my first impressions are not that good. With the Roids, I could see my sun corals and gorgonians grabbing particles out of the water.
