you got a tubastrean/sun coral how are you going to feed that?
pj86's ways is great. Take it out twice a week and feed it heavily w mysis in another tank. these corals absolutely do not mind being taken out of the water shortly. they can get so trained on heavy feeding and growth that they will still open in a tupperware tank 20 seconds after being transferred if they smell grinded mysis neat fact...
If you feed that sun coral externally, it will still import mysis protein into the tank by its waste pellets and by rejected material. Sometimes sun corals just spit up parts of shrimp and this will break down slightly in the tank enough to render protein for other systems not being directly fed. Theres lots of merit in keeping a clean micro pico but still meeting the feed requirements, thats the goal
this is a trickle down method of feeding, direct to indirect.
PJ continues to feed the whole tank phyto drip while he feeds externally, and his corals are showing the potential all picos have if they will be fed as well.
what I like best about yours is the clean design, no bulk. mine always had to be rear fanned by a desk fan, the compact mode is the best without this clutter. looks excellent.
