    Hey guys and gals so I've got a few lps corals now and well I've never directly fed any of then but they seem so be doing well, but I've recently picked up an acan

    And I'm wondering if I should start feeding a coral food? I do plan on getting some more acans and other lps (caught the bug bad) also thinking abut trying out some sps soon as well.

    Reef Roids for mine.

    You can mix a little with some tank water and either leave the wave pumps on (but turn off the return pump & skimmer) then let it flow around your display, or, you can turn all the flow off and direct feed each coral with a small cloud of roids mixed with tank water (this is my preferred method).

    fish poo is the best. Also as said they will pick up food when you feed the fish. I will be using reef roids for my zoa and i also use red plankton 2 times per week.
