Hey Everyone I'm always looking for the perfect coral food, something that gets all the Corals puffed up with polyps extended in excitement. I've always felt that the longer the food stays in the water column the better due to corals having more time to catch it. Unlike most people I don't mind it making the water cloudy for a few minutes. What's everyone's favorite food and which stay in the water column longest? Thank you all in advance

As a newbie I'm also curious about this, I'm thinking of getting reef roids atm.

Depends what you are feeding, and how you are feeding. Broadcast feeding for an SPS tank, I like oysterfeast, rotifers, marine snow and KZ pohls coral vitalizer.

For LPS target feeding- roids, reef chili, pellets, cyclops etc, ideally a blender mush of all these with mysis for larger polyp LPS.

Just my .02

I prefer broadcast feeding just because it's faster and easier, not having to stick my arm in the tank etc lol. I've used reef roids, reef chili, benereef, a mixture of all of them

I broadcast with reef roids but I also spot feed the lps, mushrooms, nems fish eggs. They really respond to that. They love them. It’s hard to find good eggs, even the brs eggs in a bottle come half good half bad so I just pick out the bad ones. Little tedious but it’s only once a week with whichever I choose to use. I try to do eggs at least once a month.

Reef Roids and Benereef, each once a week alternating. Careful with Reef Roids as I can attest it will spike your nutrients if you use too much.
