Hello out there...resently I read some articles on DIY fish foods, so I decided to give it a try...there is an asian market where I live with a variety of fresh fish and crustetions...I purchased some clams,octipus,whole shrimp,whole squid and scallops...I combined these in a blender and added vitamins but some of the mixture was very creamy...I froze some and gelled the remainder..my trigger fishs went crazy for the stuff!...but I'm wondering if I'm polluting my tank because of the cream...I was wondering if anyone has made any DIY fish food and how I can get the mixture to be more chopped up not creamy...and any recipes...thanks

Your selections were good, your preparation was off...
try a more coarse chop setting on the blender or better yet just hand chop and not so small... we want small chunks here not creamy goo which will disperse and pollute your water.

You can rinse then freeze the chopped mixture in one of the baby ice cube trays and pop them out as needed. Seal the tray in a freezer bag for storage. As for vitamins, I would add Selcon
