Feeding corals?

Recommended Posts

Decided to start a thread to showcase how you can feed your corals using a very low cost method...

Step 1:

Put the food into a small container..

Step 4:

Get a balloon Stick

You can go Mc and get it using the below 3 methods:

1) If you're a parent, say you want a balloon for your kid whistling.gif

2) Be thick skin and just ask for a balloon blushing.gif

3) Steal from a kid.. hahah.. jk~ innocent.gif

Step 5:

joint the balloon stick to the syringe like this...

not much force is required... you may like to super glue it too!

Step 8:

feed the fishes first so that they will not steal from the corals... dry.gif

the other advantage of feeding the fishes first is to allow the corals to "smell" the food and extend their tentacles out to eat..

my fishes are already trained to eat straight out from the balloon stick... hahaha

Brilliant! And I'm one of those who benefitted from your "balloon stick" method.

Super efficient and effective method. And my sea squirt is now idling in cabinet.

You mean u actually tried using it?? Haha I gave up on that within 1 day. It's only good to be used to blow detritus off rocks. That is the only reason why I still hold on to it.

Next time I go macs, I'm going to tug my boy along, get free balloon sticks!!!

What can I say, he takes after daddy. Anyway I know what makes him scream and yell, not difficult to "A" balloons from macs. Anyway, not to OT too much on a very useful thread. Good effort to help the community!

I gotta go find something to contribute too. Damn I feel useless now.
