    Hi guys,


    just want to ask a quick Q ? what are you guys feeding your corals? i.e prepared foods, own recipes etc. would also be cool to know more or less the reasoning behind your feeding regime.

    the reason i am asking is as i am planning to connect 3 tanks onto one "engine room" there would be an "interwining" of foodstuffs (i think) would also just be interesting to know what everyone is doing

    i made an awesome mix and my corals as well as fish love it.

    formula 1
    formula 2
    Brine shrimp
    krill
    octopus pulp
    omega garlic flakes
    hake - super shredded

    mix to a pulp then add formula 1 and 2 again and mix so that its a bit thicker.
    freeze and feed quarter block every 3rd night ( the food is really rich and heavy and sinks straight to the bottom of the tank ) BUT MY FISH LOVE IT

    the only reason for adding formula 1 & 2 is because of there high nutritional value the contain, which get absorbed by the frozen foods ( i hope )
