    What and how much do I need to feed?

    I have a 40 breeder with 45# LR, 6 soft corals (2 large and 4 frags), and 7 peppermint shrimp. What do I need to put in there to sustain life.

    Good lights, fish poop, and a few dashes a week of reef chili. Its a winning combination.

    No fish in there...................... and I ain't going fishing for fish poop in my DT. Lights are good, been supplementing the corals with frenzy and been throwing a dash of food in every other day, that kewl? BTW, there is a hearty cleaner crew (snails and crabs)

    No. I really never intended to take it this far. If I go that route I want to take the time to do it proper.

    A hearty fishload that is well fed is perhaps the best coral/invert food we can offer presently. Keeping detritus in suspension is also great for filter feeders. Multi-plankter mixes such as Coral Frenzy are quite good too! I feed very small amounts more than once daily.
