Flakes? Pellets? Frozen? DIY Food?

Been making my own food for 40 years. Cheap, easy and better. But when I'm lazy I may throw in some pellets. It's all good, the fish love variety.

great information everyone. I'm glad to have found out the supermarket close to my work sells fresh seafood so it'll be easy for me to make some DIY out of what they offer. I'm ready to get this started

I ended up making my first batch of DIY food. It turns out that my local markets don't have much of a selection so I went with fresh Catfish, shrimp, and scallops. At home I added Nori, garlic and an egg to the mix. I'll admit that before trying this I knew little of the nutritional values of my ingredients...which kind of defeats the purpose of trying this. Looking up everything my mix is pretty high in protein and has some decent vitamin values. I think for my next batch I'll be much more selective to get a broader range of nutritional values in my food.

The first test of my food I broke off a chunk and tossed it in my tank. My fish immediately reacted and started swarming the food. In the past 2 days and 2 feedings my fish have shown positive results and seem to really enjoy the new food offered.


Thanks everyone for the help!

I agree entirely. I see flakes and pellets as processed foods and I avoid them
