    One of the tricky parts of raising live corals in a saltwater aquarium is providing the right combinations of foods to keep the polyps alive and healthy. For many coral aquarists, feeding time meant thawing out messy frozen foods and maintaining a schedule of feedings that range from brine shrimp and phyto to krill, plus additions of amino and other elements to keep the corals happy.
