I made my own food for my fish. I took about 4 ounces each of raw shrimp, scallops, clams, salmon, mysis, brine shrimp and squid. I took 2 sheets of green seaweed and 2 sheets of red seaweed, sliced it into small pieces and added some oil from a jar of minced garlic. I put it all into a bowl, added a couple tablespoons of marine flake food and used a hand blender to pulverize it into a thick paste. I put some into snack-sized zip lock bags and flattened it into thin sheets about 1/4" thick and put them into the freezer. After frozen I took out the mixture and used a knife to cut it into small 1/4 - 3/8" cubes. and put it back into a zip lock. The small pieces at the edges are used if I have something in quarantine so I dont overfeed it.
When I feed the fish they get both meat and vegetables.
Now, at feeding time, I take one cube and put it into a small container and place some water from the tank with it to thaw it out. I make sure there are no large pieces (I tear them into smaller bits if I find them) then use a mini turkey baster to feed the fish.
One thing to remember - this stuff STINKS so be prepared if you have people around that dont like the smell of fish.
Why do I love fish? Because every time I stare into the little world I have created for them, every problem I have just floats away....
