Salmon is really fatty. I don't want that kind of meat entering my tank.
Fish eggs would be good to use also.

I was pretty sure that was the reason for the dark flesh fish. Just wanted to be sure. As for the eggs, I have been hearing that they are very good to use for food and figured I could mix them in after processing the rest of the ingredients. Just was not sure on the saltwater vs freshwater fish eggs.

I think I would use the smaller eggs. I believe it's smelt roe. I wonder how cost effective that would be though.

So this is how I feed my frozen food. Do you guys do it like this?: I take about a half an inch of water from my DT with a solo cup, and let the frozen food thaw out in it. Then I'll suck it up with a turkey blaster and put into the DT. Anything wrong with that? Always wondered, been doing it that way for years.

Sounds ok to me. I just break off a chunk, and put my hand in the tank and rub my fingers back and forth in front of a power head until it's all gone.
