I don't really know I just kinda throw some in a blender until I get a paste like out of it.

It may say here

If not I know I've seen recipes from Google searching you can try that. As far as multi vitamins I always use bird vitamins and just dose a drop in each square before freezing.

Ya I would mine get it from time to time. I normally ( when I blend) add one small sliver of some type of frozen fish. But I usually make a quite a bit at one time.

I also don't feed it every day only a couple times a week. Good luck and I'd keep an eye on them so you know how much you can get away with. So they don't bloat
