Cyclo-peeze comes frozen, or in a dry form. I prefer the frozen, but in a pinch I have used the freeze dried version. Did you look in the frozen food section of the LFS?
Sure you can add mussels. I would rinse everything well just to make sure they aren't sprayed with any preservatives. Did you read through the entire thread I posted a link to? The one guy Rod mentioned Trylophosphate (and it seemed I was pretty hard on him...maybe we got into an argument prior....hmm...mildly embarrassing). Anyway, the idea is to use fresh ingredients and know exactly what's going in your tank.

Mr X, so are you saying that seafood with tripolyphosphate will not be harmful to livestock that eat it? I just bought a pack of frozen scallops to feed my anemone. The ingredients list tripolyphosphate on it? Is this Okay for the nem or not? Fed a piece yesterday and havent seen an adverse effect yet. Was reading the following forum thread and got worried.

I have been feeding my fish and anemones my home-made food since '08 and have seen no ill effects. All I can tell you is it couldn't hurt to rinse it before tossing it in the food processor.

Thanks to Doug's suggestion a couple of years back I too have been making my own fish food,...the only thing I do slightly different is to add a little " zoa" for a little extra vitamins.
