3 Raw Shrimp (The big 'uns)
1 sheet of Nori (Seaweed You can get it at Wegman's in the Asian Isle)
I ran it through a food processor and added tap water until it was a thick paste. Don't want it runny. I tossed the goo into 3 big Zip lock bags and flattened them out with a cutting board pressed to them (About an 1/8th of an inch thich). I froze the bags laying them flat in the freezer for 6 hours then cut the sheets into 2 inch squares and put the squares into a tupperware container and back into the freezer. I feed 3 x's a day and my fish are FAT after 3 weeks......and in a good way. They love it. Cheap and better than the stuff you overpay for at the fish store just like Greg said. Fish colors are bright as all get out and I think it will up their immunities as well. It's irresistable. I was admiring my fish today because of the effects of the nutrition in such a short period of time. Thaw in a shot glass of tank water before you feed first.
No problems...it would be like me saying I have the only recipe for a cheeseburger.
I feed mine in a clip contained by a piece of mesh. I want it to thaw slowly as the fish like to rip it apart. More food seems to go into the fish and not the rocks.
3x a day seems a bit much, your fish have hit the jackpot. I guess your organics levels are okay. It is better to feed tiny bits more often in the day than large feedings I think.
I also feed my tangs dried sea weed and romain lettuce. Wondering which has the best food value to the tangs.
