do you have flake food because the flake should be used as a staple diet while frozen foods are occasinal

pre-rinse a cube of frozen food through a fine mesh net or coffee filter with alittle tank water or RO/DI water. you may have to rinse a few times until you notice its clear. this process takes 5 minutes but saves headache in the long run as frozen foods tend to be high in phosphates (and possibly other things)
a mixture of different foods is best, i personally feed every 3 or 4 days sometimes here and there for certain corals or things in my tank.

how big is this setup, how long has it been setup, more about it please.
welcome to the forum.
