    phytoplankton all its cracked up to be?

    I'm considering adding phytoplankton as a supplement for my anthelia. I also have candycane and anchor corals but I doubt they would benefit.
    anybody have experience with phytoplankton and whether or not it's worth the money. I have no clams or acroporas.

    Thanks.

    Phytoplankton is "always" good for a tank. It is the base of the foodchain that feeds the small critters that many corals, fish and inverts in turn feed on.
