    i know everyone has their own concoctions they make to feed their sun corals.
    So just thought i would start a thread to find out what works best.:thumbup:

    With a pipette, find a turkey baster not controllable enough.

    When i had mines. I cut up a 2 litre coke bottle and covered the suncoral with it.Then using a 5ml syring i injected through the top of the bottle, marine mix. Worked well!

    i feed mine omega one bits into each head by hand (once a week) and also coral frenzy (also once a week but not the same day as the bits) by 5ml nurofen syringe (came with my childs bottle of pain medication). My sun coral opens at 7 every evening as that is feeding time for my fish -as such it also catches some omega one flakes.
