    Howzit. Not a big believer in feeding corals...my fish poop is enough. I do however once a week dose a small amount of Coral Balance, it clears water and at same time provides nutrients if the corals want it...

    Tank only runs ons Reef Bacto Balls and the Coral Balance. I feed fish, and the poop does the rest....

    Tank and stand/cabinet are top notch. Will probably use MDF for my nano tank stand after reading this thread. Quite like the size of the tank too.
