Will Frozen foods go bad?

Hey gang,

I have Formula one and Formula two frozen foods which I use alternatly in my tank. Because I don't have many mouths to feed, not much food is being used very quickly. at this rate, I will not need to buy any more food till 2006!

Will it go bad soon? I keep it frozen of course, but I have had it for a number of months now and I don't want to feed my babies rancid food.


Hardware: 37 gallon SW tank and stand by Oceanic Systems, Magnum 350 Pro Canister Filter (half carbon), CPR Bak Pak 2R skimmer, Maxijet 1200 Powerhead, RenaCal 150 W heater, Compact fluorescent lights with moonlights. 40 lbs of liverock, 3" sand bed.

Software:2 Tank-Raised Ocellaris Clowns, 1 Purple Firefish, 1 Electric Orange hermit crab, 18 Blue Legged hermit crabs, 8 or so Nassarius snails, Xenia, Blue, green, and Green Striped Mushrooms.

Doesn't have an expiration date on it?
I would be inclined to think as along as it is kept frozen, you would be OK for a year or so. Freezer burn may be a bigger problem.

I had to throw away some frozen krill because it was getting freezer burned. I guess next time I'll have to get the smaller package even though it cost more per oz.

Last night I was too scared to go downstairs and put my frozen brineshrimp back in the freezer after feeding so I left it and this morning it smelled really bad so I threw it away.

BTW, my house is kind of creepy, and I don't like venturing through it at night when there is no one on the same floor.

Rocket - As with all frozen foods, as long as it's keep frozen and never defrosted, it should last until the expiration date. Never re-freeze the food as it will go bad in your freezer.
