    I read this somewhere before that corals will "catch" fish poo in the waterstream if small enough. I would not think that they would absorb full pieces but rather when it gets shredded in a powerhead and the chum left over.

    Can someone once and for all tell me if this is true or false :whistling:

    Yes, corals do use fish waste as food. However, not all corals will eat fish waste, and the size of the waste does influence if a specific coral will eat it. I hardly feed my corals, I have the philosophy that I feed my tank. Once a week I would add frozen cyclops to the food to feed some of my LPS, like my Gonioporas and Alveoporas.
