I have a pile of coral foods and am not really sure which one is best,
Tell us what seems to work best for you and how often you feed.
I'll start it off some foods I use - Polyplab, Coral grow Viality, Pohl's coral Vitalizer & Coral Frenzy. :question:

Light and fish poop! It depends a lot on which types of corals you're feeding!

SPS I think benefit most from a high fish load (with equipment to deal with this) with lots of fish food particles and fish poop. They also enjoy amino acid supplementation. Some people say using Reef Roids or Reef Chili or Coral Frenzy work well, but imho they don't work any better than whatever bits of fish food tuat the fish miss.

For LPS I find most benefit from direct feeding of frozen shrimp like Brine or Mysis depending on the polyp size. For a pellet food I like the Fauna Marin LPS pellets. I only ever feed them of they're bleached or otherwise stressed.

I rely heavily on my fish to feed the corals but every 3rd day or so I will squeeze in some kent liquid macrovert food which also helps my scallop as well

My Aussie Elegance is the only coral I target-feed. It likes New Era LPS Coral Pellets. Anything else I tried was ignored & just rolled off onto the sand. Sometimes I squirt a bit of Oyster Feast in the tank, the leather loves it!

Fauna marine lps pellets I target feed all my lps and then broadcast feed with reef roids and a variety of reef nutrition products (twice a week )

Dunno why people figure they need to feed corals or anemones at all. As others have already said poop and light. Save your money and buy more fish instead. A good homemade food is far better than most store bought food. In saying that if you prepare it with some larger food chunks than most likely it'll reach any LPS if it makes you think your corals will grow bigger and faster.
Where's the poll??

Poop and I have not been rinsing my food as the "gravy" has help bring up nutrients.
Also been slowly increasing bioload

Anyone ever tried pizza? I find that to be an all around amazing food for anything!

I mix coral frenzy with milk to feed twice a week, along with KZ CV, AA, aquavitro fuel. Seems working well.:mrgreen:
