    hello all. Thanks for all the help getting my tank cycled. I have just adding some news things to my tank. Fire shrimp, emerald crabs, a few snail and hermits. I️ also adding 4 zoas(not sure about type as it was a pack), GSP, a ricardia mushroom, and two leather corals(one looks like a tree.) I just have a few questions. Should i feed the corals and what type of food? Should i feed the tank(flake food)? And what placement is best. I have all the zoas low, except one I
    have up high. Everything else is mid to low. I️ I also turned my radion down to 15%, guy at my lps said 50 was too high. Is this appropriate? My flow I would say is on the low side. Thank you reep friends!

    Chicken Nuggets and fish poop?!?
    No kidding my friend fish poop is the right answer ;)
    Not sure which gen radion you have but it should come with a acclimation mode.
    Send us a pic of your tank and we see if all is ok in placing your corals.

    The green is the gap. Orange is the toadstool leather. Red is the mushroom and yellow are the zoas. My leather tree coral melted and died, I’m thinkin Bc my sal was too high, which has been adjusted.

    Zoas are tricky to feed since its hard to tell if they are eating. I would not bother imo. If you have lps you can feed them, its very fun watching them eat.
