    Formula 1

    I just bought some Formula 1 food. It is the first time I've used it in my tank. It is frozen. I wonder how I should add it to the tank. Do I just drop it in and let it sink to the bottom? Should I thaw it/rinse it ad then add it to the tank? I'm just not sure - how do others use it?

    Forumla1 and Formula2 has Gel binders, which keeps the food together as opposed to other frozen cube preparations that come apart in the water.

    While still frozen, I chop it up into "bite-size" pieces for the fish, put it in a shotglass, and let it that 5 mins in aquarium water. I then pour it into the tank.

    Depending on how many fish you have, you may need as little as 1/2 a cube or more.

    I just thaw mine out in a little water, and then stick a fork in there and whisk it up. It makes for pieces of all different sizes for all of the fish.

    Thanks folks. I currently have a Coral Beauty (good appetite), 2 False Percs, a Firefish, and a smalll Royal Gramma. Would 1 cube at feeding be too much?
