    The characteristic length scale of strings is thought to be on the order of the Planck length.:)

    I physically feed my LPS as well and one has to get them to open so to place food so it does not flow away in the current. Very time consuming but my bets parts of the week to watch them eat.

    i turn my pumps off and then target feed - does not take long at all

    after a few mintues, turn my intank pumps back on and after an hour, the sump starts working again - everything is happy with that arrangement
