Blender mush is a conglomeration to feed all the animals in the tank. It feeds the fish as well as the crabs, shrimps, pods, worms, corals etc... Oh, btw, if you make some.....I have read the vicks inhalers will deaden the sense of smell

Hmmm, I try to add enough different seafood and algaes to feed just about any type of fish, but, of course, you would gear your ingredients towards your specific fish. As for processing it, I actually use a small food processor rather than a blender, it is a little easier to control chunk size with a food processor than with a blender. Course noone uses the food processor anymore, but hey, my fish deserve it Basically I do like kribbz suggested, I add a portion of all the ingredients a little at a time, in stages, so the first bit you put in is liquified the next batch isn't quite as processed and so until you got a mix of particle and chunk sizes.

with the exception of a few snails kept in the aquarium, they are gonna ignore the food. The crabs and fish will appreciate a mix of fresh fish, clams, shrimp, nori and maybe some spirulina flake. You really can add just about anything you want that you would feed your fish.

so they were talking of freezing the mix after it is done is that necessary and how much do you feed them at a time?

yes the food must be frozen after you prepare it, if not it will rot and won't be any good for more than a day. It really depends on how many fish your feeding. For three fish I add a small chunk, maybe 1/2" by 1/2".

Freeze it in a bag on a cookie sheet, and just break off a little chunk. I am thinking about buying one of those mini-fridges with a feezer so I can place it in my tank room. I really would like having a cold drink while feeding my frozen goop.
