i like to make my own cuz then i know exactically whats in it. what you put in it depends on what kind of fish you have, ex if you have a lot of herbivores there should be a lot of vegetable matter in there. you can use fresh seafood such as shrimp, clams, etc. (just make sure its fresh!) for a more carnivorous mix. i put garlic in mine since it is an appatite stimulant and supposedly increases immune system. i also soak the stuff in a vitamin supplement before mixing mashing and freezing. ive had way better results with mixes ive made myself than with store bought frozen mashes.
