    Used to, but haven't for awhile. Might go back to 1-2x a week now that I've cut back on the feeding substantially.

    Used too, but haven't in a long while. The only thing I'vde been adding for SPS is FUEL.

    Probably yes, if you are bottoming out on nutrients. Less so if you aren't.

    For my reef alkalinity and trace elements seem to have a bigger impact on SPS growth and color, so I’m not sure feeding reefroids has had a huge impact, but I definitely recommend it. Some of my SPS will snatch and eat fish poop and even surprisingly large pieces of flake food so I figured they’d appreciate actual coral food. The reason I feed is to give them a source of nitrates (from the inside out) since my tank doesn’t have any. I can attest to the zoa growth rate improving tho. Also seems like my mushroom population exploded after I started adding Acropower, has anyone else noticed non-SPS respond to amino supplements?

    Never tried FUEL but hear good things, I do reef roids and chili one to two times a week, not really noticing too much irregular growth though...

    This is pretty much my experience with every additive I have tried.

    Tried Acropower for a few weeks, then started up my Calcium Reactor. I think my sps are more happy. Probably from reactor though.

    Probably from stability. The one thing that we know makes all the difference in the world.
