Good idea Billy, I think over the years I have tried almost every type of holder out thier, but never thought of that one. Another good one is pill holder boxes. Most pharmacys will give them away for free and they have a good size to them. Right now I just make them in plastic ice cube trays.

That is a good idea Mike, but you must have a lot of fish, I only have one, there fore my pickings are slim.

Ok, so you can use vicks to take away the smell when making it, can't stand the smell of vicks not to mention the smell of seafood.
Any suggestions after you make it to make it so the smell doesn't come through the bag and then stink up the freezer?

I didn't have a problem, the ziplock freezer bags are very thick and the smell didn't leach. Also once frozen the smaell wasn't nearly as bad.

For cleaning I just used a bit of vinager in the blender and then in the hot water it goes. I also use the freezer bag like Kevin.

d9hp remeber with the blender mush you are not just feeding the fish but the whole tank. What I used to do when I didnt have a bunch of fish was to just ake a cube out and cut a peice off it with a knife, then put the balance back in.

hope it helps


Mike

Wow! nice thread.

How do you feed the cube to the tank? Do you just throw it in and it dissolves in the tank?

Thanks

BillyZ ~ Awesome idea! I'm going to try that next round for sure.

Sorry I'm coming into this thread a little late, but if anyone is interested, here is my Blender Mush Tank Food recipe

I use a small tupperware cup, put some tank water in that, and let a small piece of the food defrost in that. Once defrosted, I stir it up well, then dump into the tank. I might take some up into a Turkey baster to target feed the LPS.

Thanks,

If your letting it thaw and you shut off your overlow and filtration and just use PH to cycle it around in your tank is it necessary to use a turkey baster to feed corals?
