Hey I got a ? on how you are feeding with the frozen food. When you put it in the tank water doesent it all fall apart and break up? Then if it does how do you actually feed- I'm confused on the cup- putting it in the water?

Breaking up and thawing is the point of using ro/di or tank water in the cup. You don’t put the cup in the tank with the food in it, just to add some water to the cup.

Once your frozen breaks up and if you choose to soak in the vitamins for 30+ minutes then you strain the water using a sieve (to limit adding any po4 in the water) and then place the thawed frozen in the tank.

If you have overly aggressive fish then I would feed partial amounts on each end of the tank for the less aggressive fish to get their share.


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
