How do you feed the Cyclopeeze? Do you have to direct it right at the frogspawn?
What's DTS?

What kind of lights do you have it under?
Most of the time they do just fine without feeding, but they will grow faster if food is offered on a regular basis. Marine snow, cyclopeeze, small mysis shrimp- all work reasonably well. DT's is a brand of live phytoplankton; it is far too small to be used by frogspawn, or most any other stony coral. It is best used for some filter feeders and to give your copeopod population a boost.

Reaching up and reaching out and reaching for the random, or whatever will bewilder me.
