This page desperately needs a decent coral photo. Let’s go with this one.B6B6C7B0-4768-4AC9-9C1D-843C7D46C7C2.thumb.jpeg.fd99f2ae60291d829f5765dfd86495bb.jpeg

Ok, two really tiny scoops see pic below. That’s the little tiny spoon that comes with one of the Red Sea test kits, either Ca or Mg I don’t remember.  The lid of the little reef roid jar is what the scoop is sitting on. 
I put this in one of those 2-oz plastic to-go sauce cup, fill mostly full with tank water, shake it to mix, then target feed the acros. I give a small puff around frag/colony areas, with all pumps off. Let it sit til the pumps come back on on their own (both the gyre and the mighty jet return pumps have 10 min feed timer). The food that didn’t “fall” on the polyps just kinda get redistributed around the tank afterward for a second feeding. 
I try to feed sparingly because I have no filtration beyond the floss at the overflow. 
 

when I do frozen food for fish, the torch and acan do get little squirts of frozen mix liquid.  Usually thaw half a cube in the 2-oz cup also.  
Is that too much info? 😂

Is that the Fire Dragon?  It's looking good.

 

Is that a Leng Sy cap in the background?

Yes and yes! good eyes on the leng sy. If you go back far enough, it used to be the centerpiece of my tank. I may have that in historical fts in the first post

Very cool, another underrated old school SPS.  I read an article on Reef Builders about the Leng Sy cap and they believe elevated mag (1400+ ppm) helps bring out the bright growth rim color.

That looked/looks really good.  Definitely have to have space for caps.  I hear the Reefer XL425 has plenty of space😄
