    I'm surprised there isn't someone sitting in the tank and constantly feeding them... They're like all expert only.

    You can build a continuous feeding system. I've seen them done using wine fridges and medical pumps.

    There's a person in my club that has an NPS, its really cool. For feeding basically he hooked up this thing sorta like a doser, but filled it up with food, so the corals are constantly getting fed.

    Yep, that's exactly what it is. Those medical pumps that release a constant amount of whatever is in them, and the wine fridge keeps the food cold so it doesn't go bad. You just have to refill the food container every so often.
