Some hobbyist put little effort into what they feed their fish and corals, but are surprised when they find their fish skinny or bland in color. Making sure your fish has a proper nutritious diet is just as important as the diet of any other pet you have. Feeding a consistently healthy diet will promote much more vibrant colors and a longer life span. Corals should be fed as well. This will increase the coloration of the colony and promote polyp extension. Corals that are fed more often are also likely to grow much faster than corals that are not fed. Those LPS corals especially love being fed. You can feed corals live copepods or even dry food such as BeneReef by BenePets. An added benefit to this extremely nutritious food is that it does not cloud your aquarium water as other dry coral foods do.
