Home made fish food
Here is how I make my fish food for my reef tank.
The total cost to be is in the region of £10 for about 4 months worth of food.
I use sheets of sushi Nori from the supermarket, frozen seafood mix from the supermarket too and a little flake and pellets.
The seafood mix is Shrimp, Squid, Musscles, Oysters, White fish and other varieties of meaty fish.
I defrost the fish in a jug of tank water they blend it with the garlic till I get almost the right texture. I then rip up the sheets and blend a little more.
Add the flake and pellets last.
Also in the past I have put either liquid coral food or D&D reef paste into the salt water in the jug to add a little extra for the corals.
I aim to have chunks that will fit inside my turkey baster.
I use ice cube trays to refreeze the mix. I suck it up into the baster and make my cubes, any chunks that are too big get blended again till it all fits in the baster. The idea is to make the chunks small enough to be chased and eaten but big enough that its not liquidised.
I then refreeze it into cubes and once frozen I bag the cubes.
Daily I use one cube, defrosted in an egg cup of tank water. Just put in a squirt with the baster when walking by the tank.
Hope this is useful for someone,
