    Marine Snow, Phyto, oyster eggs? I have used all of these with what I've percieved as moderate success but I guess theres no real way of telling. I need to purchase some new stuff just wanted to hear what you guys/gals think.

    Try Reef Chili. I use that along with phyto, oyster eggs, marine snow, and cyclop-eeze, I think it helps...

    I love reef chili, myself. Fairly inexpensive and it keeps a long time.

    AE has a couple types of Rod's food on hand, along with DT's Phytoplankton for filter feeders. I have used only Rod's food in my tank for almost a year and everything seems happy. Both fish and coral. I just bought a clam from AQ and they strongly suggested using DT's Phyto for it, so I'm giving it a try by spot feeding the clam.

    also make sure you are turning your skimmer off (if you have one??)...the skimmer will take the really small food particles out of the water...when i feed i actually turn off my return pump and let the top tank sit with all the food in it for 20 to 30 mins (my skimmer is hooked up the my sump)...once or twice a week i try to leave it off all night and sometimes on those night i will feed things like the osyter eggs, phyto feast, dt's reef blend...if you are really having a problem with a coral or two you can try a two liter bottle with the bottom cut off...take it and place it over a coral and put the food in from the top...all the food stays right around the coral...doing this at night works really well too...also i would try a couple different foods not just one...hopefully this helped and good luck
