Good morning everyone. I just purchased my 1st auto feeder(Avast Marine Plank Feeder) for my new tank setup. I plan on keeping Anthias in this setup and from the research I've done those fish need to be feed multiple times a day. Does anyone out there make your own custom blend food or does everyone just use flakes or pellets? I was thinking about making my own with a mix of pellets, freeze dried mysis/brine, calanus and rotifers. Anyone recommend anything? What do you mix in your custom blend?

I like the cool flakes from brine shrimp direct, I mix them with cobalt’s flake food. For pellets I have a mix of formula2, pe Mysis and ToD. The orange anthias I keep doesn’t touch the flake food but does like the pellets. He really likes the LRS frozen so I try to feed that once a day for him and a any other picky eaters.
