Kent Iodine: good growth and health of invertebrates and algea

Kent Liquid Calcium: for healthy and more beautiful corals and invertebrates and growth of coralline

Kent Strontium & Molybdenum: keeps corals attached better and open longer

ESV Potassium Iodine: better looking and healthy corals and invertebrates

Phyto Feast: food for my corals

Poly-Ox: kills red slime

Vitamin C (the pills that humans take): boost the immune system of fish to help fight off disease

Reef Plus: has amino and fatty acids that help fish and coral growth

How is that zooplex working for you? Do you think it's better than phyto fest?
I'm sick of it making my water green for 2 hours.

zooplex works fine, but the fish get more of it than the corals do. it looks like some red or orange colored specs in clear liquid. doesnt clowud up the tank at all and both my fish and my corals like it. zooplex is zooplankton not the same thing as phytofeast whick is phytoplankton.

if you are wondering about the green phytoplankton try teh phytoplex or even live phyto. i want to start growing my own phytoplankton but i have not been able to afford to get the stuff i need to do it yet.
