I’ve actually seen these at my LFS, but didn’t know what the difference was. I have the original NLS pellets.

These apparently have medication in them?

As long as they ate. Hopefully they start showing feeders. I love that part about acans and favia. No feeders, they just don't look right.

Also, I don't know how I feel about garlic and corals.

So funny thing is I have 3 containers of pellets because my clownfish are baby babys and they weren’t able to fit the pellets in there mouth so I had to get the tiny ones

I feed these to my fish the only coral food I have is reef roids. I just ordered LPS pellets because when I fed mysis my snails emerged from the dead

not sure if someone has already mentioned but I feed my tank LRS Reef Frenzy(I cut the big chunk it comes in into small cubes) every other day, its super clean food and my clean up crew loves it. Whenever I put it in the water the corals start to open up and the tentacles come out to feed. I also started dosing once a week with Red Sea Ab+ and so far so good, no crazy spikes and the corals are looking amazing.

I’ll have to look into that always looking to expand the diet of my fishy friends

He bought the camera because I got sick of him using gopro for his ambient streams. Its a ton better as go pro always crashes and no detail in the videos, photos it takes. Gopro just isn't good quality.
I agree on the quality of the go pro lol. But I can already tell your gonna be a pro with the camera !

side note: the red favia the bottom is starting to white out.
