PostSubject: Making Your Own Fish Food   Fri Apr 11, 2008 5:01 am

There is quite a bit of info on forum about the importance of giving your fish a balanced diet, and I thought some may be interested in this info. There are a couple of recipes for a home made fish food mix, which apparently produce a food which is enjoyed by ALL breeds of fish, but also improves their colour, size and health.

Recipe

1lb Frozen peas
1 whole Cucumber
5 medium/large Courgette
3 - 4 med/large potatoes
4 cloves Garlic
1lb Whole Shrimp (includes head, shells, legs)
1 whole Brocolli (or handful of frozen florets)
2 tsp Spirulina Powder
1 Capful multi vitamin liquid
Gelatine

Preparation

Boil potatoes
Remove the skin from the frozen peas
Put all veggies, shrimp and garlic into blender and mash up.
Add Spirullina powder and vitamins.
Pour into pan of boiling water and cook till veggies soft. Mash veggies up.
Make gelatine in a big pot and add veggies mix.
Keep stirring till mix goes thick.
Pour into containers (about 1-2cm thick of mix) or freezer bags. Put in fridge until it is set.
Cut into small cubes and freeze.

Thaw before feeding to the fish.

THIS AMOUNT OF MIX WILL LAST FOR A LONG TIME AND SO IS VERY COST EFFECTIVE

Feed fish once a day only, every day.
