coral care...

ok i have a few questions regarding coral care... i have two colonies of Zoa's (different kinds and i am not sure on ID.. feel free to look at my evolution post).. and under the advice of a friend (not the best source of info BTW) i have from time to time dropped in some baby bites type food and crushed pellets to ensure that the tank inhabitants have some extra food to work on with out depleting the natural growth with in the tank... this fine powder hits the current and occasionally my starfish will catch some and the corals appear to get a bit more motion to them and when the food gets close enough they appear to grab some and enjoy it... what should i be feeding?

Oyster Feast from Reef Nutirtion, Cyclop-Eeze, Marine Snow from Brightwell Aquatics to name a few. I suck up a good portion in a turkey baster and release it near the coral I am feeding.

you dont need to feed the zoos anything but good light. putting liquid foods or fine powdered foods into a tank just for 2 corals just fouls water. i would wait until i had certain types more dependant on feedings to start to do this. atleast if i was doing it now, it would be a very very tiny serving and occasional for that matter. instead your prob. better off soaking the food you do feed now in alittle selcon.

to funny thats what my guy said to!!!! i only drop them a very small amount every 3-5 days at this point and i got somthing to add to the water (i dont recall ATM what its called) its a vitamin supliment designed for corals and you add a very small amount (1 tsp) 1x weekly..... thank you all for the advce you certainly sparked another area of research for me and that is always good......
