    hi, I'm interested to know what type of mussel meat you guys feed your nennies, invertebraes ect?
    I bought a pack of Greenlip mussel from the seafood shop. it's in a half shell. not cooked, but blanced.
    Will it be fine to feed this to my inmates? I can't get hold of any other mussel meat in lichtenburg. Other ones are either cooked or smoked.

    Not sure what blanced means.

    But I would only feed freah/frozen food that has not been processed, cooked etc.

    I hardly ever use mussels, it is not a "natural" food source of a nemmie.

    Rather feed Lancefish and shrimp.

    Next time you in one of the bigger metro, go and buy loads of the Ruto Lancefish frozen packs (R50) and you will keep your creatures happy. Even your fish will love it

    Blanched means quickly cooked in water. Those mussels are way to big to feed at one time unless you have a humungous anemone. Try cutting it in smaller pieces and feeding small bits a few times a week. Watch to see if it spits out a slime ball called a bolus which will tell you you're feeding too much. Remove that if you end up with one as it contains uneaten food
