    Food for corals and critters

    I need your help in selecting good food …….. not for my fish…..but for my corals, pods, copepods, etc.

    Phytoplex, Zooplex, Spray Dried Phytoplancton ( ESV), Golden Pearls, Cyclop-eeze ( flakes or pellets ), Marine Snow, Sweetwater Zooplancton, etc.

    What do you use?

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    I culture phyto (TET), rotifers and brine shrimp for my tank because in the long run it is cheaper. I also have the time and room to do this.

    All the ones you mentioned are good EXCEPT..., for the marine snow which is basically distilled water with little of anything else in it. There was a big scam and uproar when this was found out awhile ago. On RC there were some comparison tests done which showed what each type of food contained. The best way IMO to be using these foods is to have a few of them and mix them. I have a spice shaker with a mix of all my dry foods and I dose the tank daily.

    Good idea Toutouche.

    I might even decide to test the mix on my cat.

    I'm safe......no cat police here I guess.
