Coral food mix

I have some products i'd like to try on some corals, lps and zoas basically, I managed to get some foods used in shrimp and fish farms, dried krill, spirulina algae, and a mysis, artemia and fish meal mix, the krill is not as fine as the other two, I'm looking for a way to pulverize it even more, the other two are a really fine powder, m question is what % of each should I add to the mix? here are some photos of each one...

LPS and zoas don't eat spirulina, only meaty stuff. For the LPS, just feed whole mysis/krill, as it's easier for them to eat and nothing goes to waste. For the zoas, finer food is good, but not as fine as powder. I think powder is mainly for SPS with very small polyps.

mysis and spirulina are about the same size as reef roids or coral frenzy, dried krill is a bit bigger but not much, normally I use a syringe to feed them so they have to be the right size to get through the hole in it...

If making your own coral food. I recommend trying fresh seafood not just dried. much more beneficial.
