    Question Golden Pearls

    Im using Golden Pearls in my tank. It gives no idea how much or how often to feed. I have a 35g tank with a feather duster, med colt coral, med devils hand, green star polyp , two zoo frags, a collection of assorted mushrooms, and a bta. So any idea on how much or how often to feed?

    i was told a pinch, i use like 1/16 tsp ever few days in my 77gallon.

    Make sure you monitor nitrate levels, if you add too much it could cause a spike.

    sold the 77gallon back in 2005, looking to setup a nano

    I feed a quarter teaspoon a day in the evening. More than that and the nitrates go up. Less than that and the gorgonians aren't happy. It's basically a trial and error thing. Every tank is different. Just go real easy at first and add more gradually. It's very potent stuff and very easy to add too much.

    I bought a big bag of these things. I feed just about an 1/8 of a teaspoon every few days in my 90 gal. They are great!
    They stay in the water column for a long time and the corals love them. Sure is easier than raising rotifers.

    Yup, and a bag lasts forever if you keep it in the freezer.
