Minced...the biggest pieces are 1/8" and the smallest are basically liquified. The gelatin binds it all. I put it in freezer bags and roll it out to 1/4" flat packs. For feeding I break off a day's worth and thaw it in the fridge. I use a baby spoon (nice small size) to half squish the food and half chop it. Dump it in. Corals and small fish eat the fines. The amount of gelatin compared to the total food weight is important...note the ratio.
