    Anyone feed reefroids to their sps?

    Used to, but haven't for awhile. Might go back to 1-2x a week now that I've cut back on the feeding substantially.

    1-2 times a week
     
  4. Used too, but haven't in a long while. The only thing I'vde been adding for SPS is FUEL.

    That's exactly how much I notice change in my corals :)

    Probably yes, if you are bottoming out on nutrients. Less so if you aren't.

    For my reef alkalinity and trace elements seem to have a bigger impact on SPS growth and color, so I’m not sure feeding reefroids has had a huge impact, but I definitely recommend it. Some of my SPS will snatch and eat fish poop and even surprisingly large pieces of flake food so I figured they’d appreciate actual coral food. The reason I feed is to give them a source of nitrates (from the inside out) since my tank doesn’t have any. I can attest to the zoa growth rate improving tho. Also seems like my mushroom population exploded after I started adding Acropower, has anyone else noticed non-SPS respond to amino supplements?

    Never tried FUEL but hear good things, I do reef roids and chili one to two times a week, not really noticing too much irregular growth though...

    This is pretty much my experience with every additive I have tried.

    Tried Acropower for a few weeks, then started up my Calcium Reactor. I think my sps are more happy. Probably from reactor though.

  13. Probably from stability. The one thing that we know makes all the difference in the world.
