I would like to prepare maybe a week's worth of frozen food in a squirt bottle or something with aquarium water and just pull it out and feed the fish when it's time.
Does anyone do that? Is it safe for the fish?

Thanks!

If you keep in the fridge I would taste test it each time before use

I make a weeks worth of food in tank water inside a sealable plastic or glass container and place in my fridge. That way it's easier for me and my wife to feed, easier means we will do it, lol

we humans make use of food in fridge, so theoretically it makes sense

I don't do it. I don't like week old food so I wouldn't give week old food to my fish. When I'm lazy or over stressed I pop a cube of San Francisco brand Fish Eggs, thaw in tank water and toss that in - fish feel its a treat and I feel good I got something in there with minimal effort

I wish LRS Reef Frenzy came in cubes... when I'm only sort of lazy (like today already!) I just leave my frozen fish food cutting board and paring knife out as that speeds up the cutting process...

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
