A while ago we did a poll on fish feeding frequency and the overwhelming response was daily at a minimum. So let's look at feeding corals. Do you even feed your corals separately or do they just eat what the fish eat and what the fish produce? If you do, how often are you feeding the corals? Feel free to discuss your routine and what you're feeding.

I feed daily, but feeding Reef Energy feels very different than feeding BRS Reef Chili or Reef Roids. I could almost consider Reef Energy dosing while Chili or Roids are food.

I feed a mixture of foods twice a day using a automatic feeder. I feed reef roids, reef frenzy, and 2 types of pellets but I am able to export the nutrients that come from the heavy feeding because of my refugium. I wouldn’t feed this much if I didn’t have a refugium.
