    Default What would/do you guys feed sps?

    I have montipora, pocilipora, birdsnest, and what I think the guy called a 'green monster'. I have DT's but I wanted to know what else you guys would feed them. I have heard Brightwell Aquatics' phytoplankton mixes are really good. Has anyone used those? What do you think of them? What supplements would you use for them?

    I culture my own Phytoplankton to feed to, among other things, clams and corals. I also have multiple refugia attached to my reef tanks, so the corals get a constant flow of suitable zooplankton as well, day and night.

    On a very infrequent basis (1-2 times monthly), cyclopeeze, rotifers or Reef-Roids for my green stylophora.

    The hydnophora exesa I have has polyps large enough to take whole mysis shrimp, so I give it about 3-5 mysis shrimp per feeding (which is about every 10 days).

    NLS specifically for corals, not that I'm aware of.

    That's not to say that corals are unable to consume NLS. Some of my corals, particularly LPS corals, inadevertently will capture and consume the NLS pellets I feed my fish; though my stylophora sometimes captures NLS pellets (small fish formula, really tiny pellets); and though they're apparently too large to consume whole, the polyps of this SPS hold on to them with persistance.

    When it comes to obtaining 'nourishment' from non-photosynthetic means, I've found many corals to be rather indiscriminant in what they will seize and consume. The corals which I have seen capture and consume NLS will also capture and consume fish 'waste'. Hard to say if NLS is 'good' for them, but they'll (attempt to) obtain what they need out of it.

    I feed a coral food containing mostly rotifers and cyclops a few times a week. I feed phyto every other day for my clam and pod population. I don't believe SPS feed on the phyto directly, but on the pods that consume the phyto.
