Default Dosing AA At Night?

Recently I started dosing amino acids. At night, I have crazy polyp extension vs. during the day. Does it make sense to dose the Amino Acids at night when the coral is feeding? Or, does it not matter and can I go back to dosing in the morning when I do my other dosing.

I have not seen a real difference but I remember a scientific article about amino acids which result was that photosynthesis does support the consumption of amino acids for corals so from this perspective it might be better to dose while the light are one.

I sent an email to faunamarin.de and they preffer dose amino at night too! It makes complete sense because you want to feed the corals and not algae!

I dose 1ml of vodka after lights off (1000 litters sps reef aquarium) by the same reason because corals feed from the bacteria (carbon+no3+po4 = bacterial mulm) my corals got realy good collors feeding from this mulm. And my corals eat all the junk from the fish at night!!! My no3 and po4 drop so good that i turned off my skimmer permanently because my corals eat all this mulm and grow happy! I noticed that my skimmer was taking all good food from the corals ..... after turned off skimmer coral colors pop!!!

I don't understand, do you dose vodka in addition to the Zeovit system?

Why are you dosing vodka? Nice corals by the way! Tank looks great.

Vodka (and biopellers, vinegar, sugar...) adds carbon, bacteria uses carbon+no3+po4 to reproduce. This can be exported by your skimmer and this mulm is food for corals too.
