* Bender Mush Recipe-by Hara
When making the blender mush, use the whole creature...unpeeled shrimp, ungutted fish, all the parts of the squid...everything. My mush is made of squid, cod, scallops, shrimp, crab, whatever is seafood and is on sale. I then add nori (seaweed) some garlic oil and zoe (vitamins). Blend it all up, put it in ziplock bags, lay it out flat so that the mush is very thin. Then when it is frozen, you can just break off pieces. Some flake food can be added to thicken the mush if it's to thin and Selcon can be used in place of Zoe. When feeding, remember a little goes a long way

You don't cook it all before blending?

When I make mine, I just buy 2-3 raw shrimp, some cod or whitefish and 3-4 scallops. Ask the person to just put them in a container and ring it up at the highest value if you have to. They look at you funny for the small quantities but just tell them what it is for and you should be ok. Mine usually only cost about $3-4 or less.

The selection at Kroger is not that great

This will make 2-3 thin layered ziplock bags of a fresh food. I add tank water for consistancy, Zoe, garlic, nori and what ever else I have.

Once blended it will be small so all fish/corals can eat it. You can blend some parts more than others to get a thin and thick food particle if you have bigger fish as well.
