I mix it up algea tabs, raw shimp pieces, blender mush ( the most popular ), and cyclopeze . I rotate them throughout the week and then I have a day off of feeding on Sunday.

What is cyclopeze?
When you do the blender mush, how do you feed it? If it's not in flakes or granules, won't it just badly mess the water?

Don't know, I do know lots of people are using it and getting good results, from what I have read.

I put the blended mush in ziplock bags and freeze it, after a day or so, Icut it up into little meal sized chunks, take a chunk, thaw it in a cup of tank water, break it up and pour it in the tank. There are fish sized chunks all the way down to liquified. It feeds everything in the tank from the worms, pods and critters to the corals and fish. It is possible to foul the tank with any food, I have found the proper amount of mush to feed everything and not foul the tank.

These highest levels of omega-3 HUFA’s are essential for larval aquaculture applications and typically exceed forty times (40 X) those obtained from hatching the highest quality Artemia eggs
