Is this for the fry?

I just feed mine little chunks of shrimp for treats and flake (Formula) the rest of the time.. Sounds like a smorgasboard though.. Clowns ought to love it.

Sounds good to me. Make sure it stays frozen.

I would have used nori instead of the lettuce (no nutrional value), but your blender mush should be fine. It might take them a bit to get used to it. My tank loves it when I make it. It's not too small or too large is it?

well i had a hard time getting it to blend so i thinkn i might have had it in to long. its my first time making it so i am still working out the knots. i found that it like to stick to the side of the blend and not do what its suppose to. i have very fine peices in there as well as some larger ones my large clown cant even eat.

Personally, I would soak the frozen in the garlic and other vitamins (while you thaw it out). You can add too much garlic, it can be overpowering if there is too much.

It just sounds like your average blender mush. They will get used to it.
