Alb_56 have you tried feeding any of your corals?
That's funny because I tried the Fauna Marin Ultra LPS pellets as well a few years ago side-by-side on frags of corals from the same rescued colony along with Spectrum and Formula Two. The corals did not react as well to the FM pellets (they did not extend tentacles as fast, eat as much, or recover as quickly as the ones fed the other foods.) Granted, this was a tiny sample with lots of uncontrolled variables, but I wasn't happy with the FM pellets I tried.

See my homepage for more information on rescuing coral!
