DO you HAVE to feed a tank that only has soft coral in it? No livestock -- just liverock is in with the coral.

 

 

I see others who asked this were told....not really MAYBE just a PINCH once in a while?

 

 

I mean -- my thinking here is there will never be nutrients therefore I'll never have any "serious" algae issue. But does the lack of nutrients hurt soft coral growth? specifically zoa/palys

If all the soft coral is photosynthetic then the theory is that "they will survive with just light, but would benefit from supplemental feeding". Just like a plant......

It should have a light clean up crew.

 

It would most probably grow SOME algae regardless.

 

You have to remember softies will love the "dirty" tanks, which means algae and feedings.
