I have a turkey baster and some liquid coral food
once a week I try and squirt a bit in each one
but they eat whatever they can catch in the water
frozen mysis is good I defrost a cube in a plastic tea strainer
and just put some boiled water over it. leave to cool
the fish love this and a defrosted mussle crush a bit in your fingers

I use live photo plankton and the cleaner shrimps RACE to the corals as soon as they close up to eat the shrimp are trying to pic the food out of them greedy buggers. If this carries on they will be removed and traded in at LFS.

More Pics:

First is my pregnant cleaner shrimp which had them around 20 mins after this pic, didnt bother saving them as it created a feast for the 2 shrimps. Nice to know that they are breeding and shows my tank is spot on.


Also some new corals:
