    Hi everyone,

    I did read the other related threads but still have some questions. I have a mix reef and I am looking into feeding my corals.

    So what are the guru's feelings about this? Does the growth justify the cost? I am interested in the results posted by BRS on their channel relating to the Reef Roids and Reef Chille products. BUT.... are they even available in SA?

    Will also attach a poll relating to reefers preferred coral foods.

    I had excellent results with Acropower, but it is rather expensive.
    H2Ocean range makes the water very dirty and i never noticed a feeding response in any corals after feeding it.
    Phyto is good, especially if you can get it live.

    At the moment all i dose for corals are Red Sea Coral colours. I don't specifically feed the corals because i do tend to overfeed fish so theres more than enough waste for them to feed on.

    would be a lot better if you listed their size and price as well.

    I've used Fuel on a nano tank. Good results, but it gets rather expensive to add it to a 1200L system.
