Make your own fishfood

Does anyone have any omnivore and carnivore recipes they could share please.
I made a batch of 1part clams, 1 part calamari and 1/5 part oysters. The squid did not blend very well lol. Guess I need to run food processor a bit longer. I read about garlic and vitamins and green stuff(seaweed) and was wondering on ratios or amounts.

Here this is from my post, the only thing I will do next time is leave some shrimp and nori larger for the bigger fish.

I used 6 oz of shrimp, mussels, and oysters and 5 clams.
1 tsp spirulina
2 tsp golden pearls
2 Tbs freeze dried cyclops
3 cups chopped nori mostly green, some brown and purple.
A few drops of
3 cups RO/DI water

I have the 4 tangs and foxface so I wanted a mix that had lots of greens for them. It turned into a nice thick dark green mix. I used mini freezer trays and made 4 months worth of food, feeding 2 cubes a day.

I bought bulk bags of spirulina, cyclops and golden pearls so that was $20 and will make a lot of food, the sea food was $20, I had selcon and Nori, but you can get about a year supply of nori at the Asian market for about $5-10 depending on how much you feed. I double bagged them in 30 day supply per bag to avoid freezer burn.

I've read if your going to make your own food it's good to supplement with a vitamin like selcon.
