    Fish, like people need a variety of foods. IMO. If you don't want to buy a variety of fish foods (frozen, flake & freeze dried) make some blender mush. Just buy an assortment of seafood (squid, mussels, scallops, clams, octipus, fillets from non oilly fish, etc) put them in a blender and blend until as finely chopped as your fish require. Freese in sandwich bags (about 1/4 inch thick) or in the small ice cube trays. Break off a piece and thaw in tank water for your fish. I also add nori (human sea food available at the grocery store), phyto, selcon, and garlic extract (from a health food store). If the mixture is too thick, add some RO water. It's like making a soup or stew - use what is available that is good for the fish. If you have fish that need algae - then use more nori, etc.

    The thing to remember when you are buying the seafood, is look for fresh or frozen without preservatives. Many times the packages will list a phosphate as a preservative. Recently I was able to buy a bag of mixed seafood with no preservatives for $3.00 - a lot less than buying a little bit of everything. For less than $5.00 I have enough food to last a month.
