Blender Mush, what do you think.

This is what I am gonna use to make some blender mush this weekend.

Fresh Shrimp
Nori Sheets
Morsels
Flakes (if I can get some)

This does not sound like much, also, should I add some kind of liquid to thin it out a bit?

What else can I throw in?

Any fresh seafood. The bulk of mine consists of fish, I also add scrimp, clams, scallops etc...basically a little of whatever the fish shop has on hand. I add nori, cod oil, you can add selcon or zoe or some sort of viatamin. I use tank water to thin it out. Becareful it is real easy to blend it too long, the idea is to have a varying chunk size from liquified to fishy bite size. I like to put it in a quart size zip lock bag and lay it flat on a cookie sheet and then freeze it, break off what you need and feed.

Selcon is a vitamin and it has amino acids in it to if I remember correctly. Its real good for the fish and keeps them healthy and colorful. I do mine pretty much the same as Keven does. Remeber when you are blending it not to blend it to much. Yuou are looking for peices in many different sizes, ie: sizes for your fish, crabs, worms corals and so on. Make sure your Blender is real clean before u use it, run it under boiling water, (gets rid of any antibacterial dish soap that may be on it.)

have fun

Ok, I am gonna throw some zooplankton and DT's in there too. Thanks for the idea Kribz. I am gonna just get the cheapest stuff from the fishstore they have, like a couple shrimp, a filet of nasty fish, and then some other stuff you mentioned, where can I get selcon

you can get selcon online i believe for pretty cheap. and as for the shrimp and the fish i find it cheaper to go to the grocery store and buy the uncooked raw shrimp and simply take off the shell. also concerning the different particle sizes i would just cut the meat up as best you can with a knife and throw half in the blender at the biggining so you blend that to almost a puree. then add the rest of the meat at the end to keep some larger peices.

OK now im confused..... I have no fish yet but when i get some i wanna make sure i do this right. So to feed them correctly what all should you give fish for food? I know that i should give fish food flakes, and dried seaweed. What other foods do you give and how is it done? Sorry for being dumb.
