Think, I will Add Some of the Live foods I am Growing as well. And some Live Mealworms instead of the fish. And maybe some Crickets and grubs.
This is what we want to see. Super conditioned fish living in our lush green tanks....the ideal combo
Do you think this food will be ok long term or more of a conditioner? Are you feeding once, twice or more times a day?
Really tempted to make some and see the effects for myself, is there any science behind the concoction, or just what you thought would be a good idea?
Quick question, are you keeping this frozen or just in the fridge?
Not sure how long it would keep defrosted?
I used a similar recipe for years in my fish house, never had any problems everything bred from Discus to tanganyikans
I altered the mix depending on the fish, I had one with more fish meat/prawns in than the other had more veg.
You can knock up a kilo of this great food for a lot less than commercially available foods
I put it in large self seal backs about 500g per bag, spread it to all corners so it was less than 5mm thick (easy to break pieces of) then just stack the bags on top of each other to get them flat.
Last 6 months easily in the freezer
If you want alternative recipe just google "shrimp mix" you will probably end up on a cichlid site
Just a word of warning
"Use the blender when the other half is out for the day and give it a good soak to get rid of the fishy smell"
copper harlequins go mad for the recipe i posted too, I'd love to try on discus tooHmm this is interesting, I tried something like this a while back, using about 2 parts veg to 1 part meat but the fish seemed uninterested. This was copper harlequins and pearl gouramis. Surely in the wild these fish eat mainly live foods such as bloodworm and mosquito larvae and supplement that with a bit of algae so it would make sense to feed a predominantly fish based food. I may well be completely wrong but that was my experience and thinking, but I can't deny your bleeding hearts look great.
