I feed green water to my 80 gallon reef about every other week and usually a cap full or two!

I prefer home made "mush" to feed my corals and clams! I use raw shrimp, clams, oysters, raw fish, nori, etc and grind it all up in a blender with RO/DI saltwater and flatten it out in a freezer bag and freeze it and break off a quarter size chunk and feed the tank. I am sure the four clams I have and corals love it.

I mush some of the frozen mush so the saltwater looks milky and then feed the tank.;)

Don't you hate it when that happens? I'm curious myself, as I'm jut getting started with phyto-.
Casey for sure grows his own, in 2L bottles, and I think he said he used a half cup, every other day.
Also, do a search. There was a discussion about this just recently and there is a neat website, (Flame Angel's Reef, I think) that has step-by-step instructions for culture and feeding of phyto- and rotifers.
