Thig general guide would generally be helpful! in general I chose to cross my fingers and dump some really old phyto from the fridge.
Also, 1000ml per day is a lot!

Used to work in an aquaculture facility and we would culture our own algae to feed clams... wonder if I could start a small culture for my corals!

I added Phytoplankton to a recent coral order to add to my setup and this was a great video to explain the benefits of using it!

I want to try connecting a phyto source to a dosing pump and adding small amounts throughout the day

There has been a lot of positive info on pods lately. I think we are discovering how important these guys that usually just appear out of nowhere are

Nice to know they have considered FO vs Reef systems in their charting although I'd probably start with less just to be sure I wasn't going to spike any of my nutrient levels

I've never tried a Moorish Idol, not sure it's something I'd feel comfortable doing till there was a consistent success story from the community

The small doses more often makes sense. Giving our corals and reef inhabitants frequent smaller doses of everything else makes sense. Feeding copepods and such one large meal daily seems like it would be less effective than feeding them 3 or 4 regular meals daily.

Love the system but it's not for me, I'm more of a DIY'er with a makeshift sump and busted up parts and projects all over the place lol

Daily Video Talk Bonus - The video was a great starting point for me to learn about dosing Phyto. Looking at your dosing chart will help.
