i stopped in the asian food store and got a bag of mixed seafood for $2.99. they had a cheaper bag but this one had a better presentation. i pre-rinsed, ground it up, bagged it and froze.

OneFish, in my almost 20 years in the hobby, I've never seen anyone use live BW's to feed corals of that type, ever. Always frozen. That looks like it would work great. I'm gonna try it this weekend.

heres my take on Rods food. yes, it is very good IMO but cannot be used to often or else you'll see algae issues.
i personally really like to make my own food with all sorts of things. the seafood mix is very good as it includes a mixture and is cheap. i use everything all kinds of food and even some veggies, garlic and selcon, nori in red/green and purple that gets soaked then ground up, everything gets mixed up then, frozen and im good to go. the hikari first bites and other baby foods get mixed in too and it seems my corals like the small grain size of the food. both fish and corals approve of my mixtures. off the top of my head ( im at work ) i use frozen mysis, bloodworms, plankton, mussel, squid, the seafood pack has cuddlefish/chopped octopus/shrimp/mussel and a few others, an angel and butterfly food that contains things like sponge/krill/squid and a few others, cyclops, fresh cucumber, nori in green/red/purple, flakes, freeze dried bloodworms, krill, plankton, pellets like hikari marine S, and hikari first bites, brightwell garlic, selcon, and things like this.
SFF as for the feeding of live blackworms heres my take, every once in awhile live foods are crucial to be fed to your fish for their health and even to have them in breeding condition. i know a guy that says back when he started the hobby not many foods were available really besides flakes. (which IMO is like flavored paper) and he said his fish would always have ich. he then continued to go on about how he started using foods containing more oils and nutrients and his fish havnt had ich since. he says a mixture of foods is best ( which is my thoughts exactly ) and not to feed live foods to often because they do contain oils that will whack out your skimmer for a few hours. he even feeds fish roe which is fish eggs and says usually your local fish market/store will give you some if you ask. i feel this oils improve the health/colors of my corals too.

I agree with that. As for Blackworms, I 've always fed them to my fish and to inverts (Crusts only), but never to live corals. I haven't tried it yet, but I will.

I went to my LFS today but they were out
