Blender mush

How do you make yours?

the last time i made some i used
ocean perch
raw shrimp
flake food
spinach
tank water
zoe
and some gelitan

I wanted to get some other ideas on how other people made there stuff. I made so much last time it lasted forever, but what i didn't like was that when i had to thaw it just before feeding, I had to stir it and break it up. Maybe too much gelitain?

Let me in on your secrets Please

I dont use any gelitan yet I still have to stir it up alot to break it up. I think the fish fats in my blend must hold it all together.

All the below was raw unless other wise noted

Squid
Oysters
Tuna steak
Scallions
Dred Nori Sheet
Tank water
... I think i used one other seafood item but cant remember...

Reeflady has webpage describing her wonderful mixture.

A type of dried seaweed: "Dulse (Palmaria palmata) - is a red seaweed that grows attached to rocks by a "holdfast" in the North Atlantic and Northwest Pacific. It is commonly used in Ireland and Atlantic Canada both as food and medicinally and is now shipped around the globe. Dulse is found in many health food stores or fish markets or can be ordered directly from local distributors."

I get it from Rawhealth.net

Hmmm, welll, the raw seafood probably makes up 60% of the mix, nori, dulse & any other vegg - 35% - and 5% going to the golden pearls & other misc powdered/dried stuff.

I try to make only a couple small ziploc bags full (enough for about a month) - the fresher the better.

We feed this daily.

LOL - I guess not - we've had our pair of Ocellaris for almost 5 years now, and they've never had eggs....

They are sometimes used to feed fry, but I use them more as a coral food (artemia & rotifera) - the Golden Pearls benefit both the adult fish & the corals. I have no baby fish either.

With the fish you have, you could go a little easier on the Nori/Dulse (veggies). We have 3 Tangs, so our mix/ratio might be a bit different.
