Hi everyone , How often and what are you feeding your LPS corals ?

I currently have a Hammer , a Torch and a Goniopora , I have been target feeding the torch and hammer krill and mysis once every couple of weeks and yesterday I fed the Goniopora with red plankton and fine chopped muscles which a few heads managed to get hold of .
I've also seen there are specific pelleted and bottled foods for corals including LPS and am wondering how these compare to feeding with frozen cubes ?

I never use to feed my LPS and relied on the good old fish poo however I have noticed a difference using the Fauna Marin LPS Grow and colour they gobble it up

Thanks:

Thanks Marty , How regularly are you feeding the pellets to your LPS ?  Do you think the tailored pellets would be better for the corals over frozen cubes ?

They contain more then washed out frozen food also I have found the dedicated LPS pellets to be small and soft which allows the corals to easily and quickly eat them
