It might be, usually you need to drain off quite a bit of liquids first. It's why I try to keep mine a bit drier before freezing. High protein foods will make phosphates, so maybe reducing the feeding schedule might help.

Reviving an old thread here but well I did it. Made my own fish food and let me tell you they went NUTS! I have never seen them that excited to eat before. Thanks for starting this thread and passing along the idea. Now I'm gonna have fat happy fish. Lol

Instead of the blender, try chopping the stuff up. It works better as you can control the size of the pieces.

My question is, where do you get the vitamins for your mixture? Any suggestions on something commonly found at say, walmart or a chain grocery store?
