    Golden Pearls

    ok, i got my Golden Pearls in the mail today (along with a sample of spray-dried krill - which my tangs seemed to enjoy). Just a few questions:
    1) does it need to be refrigerated?
    2) how much / how often do you suggest i feed?
    3) of course as i was lazy to get a spoon (stupid me) i tried just tapping a drop in from the container, and yes you guessed it, a whole clump fell in the tank. is this something of concern that i should worry about ruining my tank? or will it just get skimmed out and should not be a need for concern other than wasted food?
    thanks.

    I refigerate mine in the hopes of maintaining the nutritional value longer. I think it's a good idea.

    Don't worry too much about what happened with the big bunch but skip a few days to make up for it. Some people put it in a salt shaker so that it's easier to dispense. I just keep mine in a small plastic jar because I like to mix it in with some tank water and use a feeding tube (turkey baster will work) to target feed my SPS corals.

    I'd start out with just a quarter teaspoon every two or three days to start. If you use too much at first you'll get an algae bloom. I don't think just one overdose incident will cause this though.

    IJO I would be interested in some if you can ship them....just keep in informed.

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    I still have some left but it would be great to be order from AC next time. I also got mine from Brine Shrimp Direct because I couldn't find a Canadian Supplier.
