Lightbulb What you do with extra fish food?

Extra fish food as in, fish food that you just don't need. For example if I get 7 pounds of NLS pellets, I really wouldn't need anymore Hikari Gold pellets anymore. So what do you do? Do you chuck the food in your lawn? Do you just store it elsewhere? Do you just throw it in the garbage? Do you throw it in the compost and let it smell?

I have a surplus too, I don't know what I'll do with it, it's all stuff that I wouldn't feed my fish.. Maybe I'll dump it down the toilet to feed all the sewer oscars, bettas, and alligators!

Keep switching it off with the new food every other day until it runs out.

It makes a great plant food in the flower bed. LOTS of nutrients. OS.

As a plant fanatic, she will probably still be a brown thumbed plant murderer. Most plant stuff is more over/under watering or light issues But they might make an ok into a great plant!
