    This is what I used to feed. Alan and Dean said my fish ate better than most people...LoL

    It is a recipe Eric Borneman "invented":

    Fish food and coral food (coral food is liquefied) Ingredients
    • a whole fresh sea fish
    • 10 whole shrimp - I squeeze the heads
    • 1 pound fresh mussels - cracked and scraped out
    • 1 pound fresh clams including clam juice
    • 1 8 oz container fresh oysters
    • 1-2 fresh or frozen squid, whole
    • 1 package frozen sea urchin cubes
    • 1 12 oz package artemia (brine shrimp, frozen), thawed
    • 6 types of dried seaweed Nori, Wakame, Hijiki, Dulse, Ano, etc.) - available at Whole Foods market, health food stores, Asian markets.
    • about 2 g. powdered sea greens/antioxidants or immune boost complex
    • 2 tbsp. marine flake
    • 2 tbsp. VibraGro
    • 2 tbsp. powdered spirulina
    • 1 tbsp Super Selco
    Optional (found frozen in Asian markets)
    • ark shells
    • periwinkles, etc...
    Method
    • Blend coarse ingredients in food processor
    • Mix in fine ingredients (Artemia, powders, flake, Selco)
    • Freeze in flats
    This makes a LOT of food...approximately 10-12 quart size Ziploc flats.
    OPTIONAL: I also make a pigment complex of multiple fresh and health food purchased pigmented animal and plant sources ( such as vegetables with rich colors, carotenoids, etc), mixed with some of the fish food, liquefied, and fed to corals at night.

    I normally get the 2 kg packets of frozen goodies from Pick 'n Pay - shrimp, mussels, prawn and a few marine mix (calarmari, octopus, crab, shrimp) then pop them in juice blender together with nori, artemia, pacific krill, bloodworm, some nutri max (hagen) flakes, and sera's slow sinking morsels granules - All this comes to about 150 ice cube blocks and use about 5/6 blocks per day

    I would also add some crushed up Nori and some hake into the mix.

    You're a nutcase.....:wave2:
