great to know. same like we love our fish more than ourselves.
where did you hear this? I've never had a problem with the mix I use
I've seen people adding veggies but I can't recall if they have to be cooked or not.
That's what I heard on youtube. I guess it's just common belief.
have you ever tried putting seaweed in the mix? cuz only my tang eats nori sheet.
Well, I guess if you all want to go to this much trouble, you probably end up with some pretty good food. However,I'm not really understanding the purpose; there are many quality fish food companies out there that turn out well balanced, quality products. Why would you go through all this trouble, destroy food processors, ice trays, etc., to come up with essentially the same thing?
Kinda goofy but would this work? (I do think the hearts are cute, but it's also a buck)
To Save money, way cheaper to DIY.
To save time, rather then melting the frozen adding in pellets, reef rods, garlic, vitamins. Soaking for at least 30 mins....its all in there already just dump in the tank(though I generally do still melt it)
know exactly whats in it, rather then mystery maybe's.
location not all of have LFS's that carry anything beyond your basic frozen brine and blood worms.
that's work as long as you think the heart cube met your tank need.
Well "quality fish food companies" is subjective to say the least.
IMOP Im not destroying a food processor or ice trays and it is not much trouble at all for me.
It is the satisfaction of providing the freshest food for my fish and coral, not to mention I can make about three months worth of food for the same price if not less than the prepackaged stuff.
Keeping in mind and understandably so that they must pay for there preservatives, packaging and distribution of there product.
Wow. This might cheaper than buying Rod's food every week. Thanks a lot. I won't eat it but I bet my fishies will love it
I used to add bananas and mangoes to the mix. They sure loved the mock-tail.
