If you want fat happy fish, make your own food.

I just bought a frozen seafood medley that includes calamari, mussels, octopus, and shrimp. It's a 1lb bag. I also got some tilapia. I will be adding vita Chem, garlic extract, and a sheet of nori. What type of ratio should I do with these ingredients. Really need to know how much vita Chem and garlic.

Not sure on the calamari it might be to rubbery for the fish to eat. Maybe someone with more experience in using calamari can chime in.

calamari is just squid I believe. Something will eat it

Yes squid but when we have gone to the restaurants I have heard that it is quite rubbery to eat. So I figured if it is rubbery for humans to eat then it would be difficult for fish to eat. But I could be wrong.

I am with a variation each batch. I never make exactly the same thing every time.

I make enough for 6 months at a time, about half a mixing bowl worth. I use a shot glass and add a full shot of vita chem and about 1/2 shot of liquid garlic, because that stuff goes a LONG way.

You mince it up into easily eaten bite size chunks. They don't chew, they just gulp it down. Plus you don't cook it, that's what makes it rubbery I think.
