My corals weren't doing as well as I would like even with supplemental feedings of Cyclop & Dt's. I was running skimmer and filter socks 24/7. Removed socks and shut skimmer off when feeding for at least 3 hrs and the corals have done a 180! I have to believe the food simply was not staying in the water column long enough to be utilized and, anything of benefit that was in the water column was being removed. I now only use the socks for clean up as mentioned earlier.
