Vodka and Pappone combination

There are many reports about dosing vodka exports nutrition to very low level, and starve corals. Also many people have great success using pappone for nutrition source. Sounds like they will make a good combination.

Has anyone try them? Do you get good results?

Yes, I do them both on one system....

How much do you dose vodka, and how often for pappone?

I dose both as well, and usually add a bit of sugar to the vodka. I do that in the morning every other day or so, and at night I add aminos + pappone. I've gotten a bit more slack lately now that I have a new job that takes up more attention, but things have been going quite well with it since I started. Water is always crystal clear and good PE and color with the SPS.

I did have some algae issues for a while (and still to some extent) but they predated the pappone feedings. I try not to go too crazy with it now.

Do you know if other soties and LPSs will benifit from pappone as well? I have mixed reef.

Vodka will export nutrition. Pappone will supply nutrition. I think it will be very close to zeo stuff. You export nutrition till most zooxanthellae will die. That got rid of brown. And it will starve coral since it can no longer get food from photosynthetic much. Then you need to add extra food. It will help grow more meat. That's the bright colors we want to get with out brown.
