I just put it in a dixie cup and use water from my tank to defrost it. It would be better to strain the water from the food though to reduce waste.

I just put the cube of frozen food in glass bowl, it only takes 4-5 min bfr it's defrosted. Either mix in some tank water or in my case I pour little treated water as I have to split my portions between 5 tanks. I think we all develop our own ways of doing things that work for us best. Good luck and enjoy

I have a designated cup that I've never washed with soap for 1 year and I scoop up some tank water put in a cube add some garlic powder and coral food. Take a shower or leave it there 10-15 minutes stir it up then feed it to my fish and there is usually no waste

Ok, would you please tell me more about garlic? I've been trying to get some info on it. Really want to add it to my fish diet but have not been able to get any recipes
