    K, $3.45 then but still cheap and effective. You can always go with a bigger syringe as well, but then you're stepping up into the high $3.75 range.

    Match it. 3/16 or 1/4 inch for silicone. Just got to match the inner diameter to what you are feeding. The silicone tube will stretch over the 1/4 just fine. I'd recommend silicone over standard airline tube.

    If your feed is extra chunky just blenderize it. Nutri bullet is great.

    I use this. Purchased from Walmart for about $10. I use mine with the injector needle attached, and have to be very careful not to stab or tear any of my corals. Been using it for 6 months or so now and it’s doin the job just fine [​IMG]
