    Hi folks. Quick question: what is best to feed zoanthids, like button polyps, and other soft corals (shrooms, etc.). Some have been receptive to bloodworms, but I fear they may be too large (although my peppermint shrimp is more than happy to clean up anything left behind).

    I want to get more opinions before I start adding more corals...

    Thanks!

    They contain the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which provide almost all of their nutritional requirements. Especially if the lighting is not optimal, they should be fed micro-plankton or baby brine shrimp.
