    Im pretty sure they used to, maybe when the tank was first set up. But now(and for quite a while) all thats being used on the tank is Coral Color. Other then that, just the calcium reactor running on it.

    Yes for about the first year to 18 months we used Elos Purist Line. We loved it but not the cost of adding that many products. In between then and now we have tried various products. At this point we have gone back to simple. Calcium Reactor, Magnesium supplement, and Koral Color.

    What do you guys feed the sps in this tank and how often? The colors of the acroporas in particular are always stunning to see in person!

    we don't have a set regime on when they are fed. we try to feed 'em a couple of times a week though, the fish are fed daily so they do get some from that. as far as foods are concerned we use.......oyster-feast, phyto-feast, nutramar ova (prawn roe), roti-feast, rods food, and just the bits and bobs from mysis and formula variety that we feed the fish. soooooo all-in-all we mix it up best we can and obviously we don't feed all those foods at the same time....we rotate 'em.

    And are you guys still dosing KoralColor, too? Seems too simple for such nice colors!

    we actually are currently not dosing anything short of making sure alk, ca, mg are all where they should be. we actually stopped dosing with koralcolor about 5mo ago or so.........they great thing is i was expecting to see a color shift (seein' that the corals really put on color when we started koralcolor) and so far.......well i think it speaks for itself.
