    Hello, what do you feed your Corals/Inverts? Inverts I meen (Fanworms, Anenomes ect). Ive been feeding various LPS, SPS, Anenomes (Sabae and Retteri) and a sh*itload of fanworms Reef Snow for over a year now. Things have been going good, growing steadily allowing me to frag atleast one coral branch every month off from each Coral. However, I am curious if there is anything better on the market that will promote quicker growth. Thanks.

    Hi Storm - Been a while, hey mate! How's things?

    I use a "special marina mix blend" that I make myself :)

    Marina mix (seafood), mussel meat, nori, garlic..... put this all in a blender, with some tank water - and blend - keep on adding tank water until the blend is nice and fine/smooth :)

    Then - pour into ice-cube plastic holders/containers - and place into the freezer.....

    To be really honest I have never feed my corals anything. The fish shit is enough for them.

    I think, and this is just my personal opinion, feeding corals stuff like marine snow is just a sure way to pollute your tank with uneaten food. Most fish wont eat the coral food and most corals will only eat a little bit of it, the rest just gets left to settle and pollute your water.
