    Blender Mush question

    Hey all,

    I was doing the grocery shopping the other night & noticed Loblaws is selling a bag of frozen sea food for about $5 containing:

    Raw Octopus, cuttlefish, squid, shrimp
    Cooked Mussels or clams.

    Currently I have no fish, but I'll be getting some later this month. Question is:

    1) Does that sound okay for a base blender mush?
    2) Would it have any benifit at all to an assorted collection of softies & a candy cane? (They currently get light & frozen brineshirmp every 3rd day or so.)
    3) Any other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    That's what I feed my fish sometimes, minus the cooked mussels and add cyclopeeze. They love it, and our cleaner shrimp has never been happier.

    I have no idea if it would benefit corals (as I have none), but I'm sure someone will answer shortly.

    I wouldn't use any cooked seafood, use raw instead. Critters have difficulty digesting cooked food.

    So should I look for a different mix or is picking out the cook clams and / or mussels good enough?
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    Pick them out if you can. I almost lost a bubble coral once because I fed it cooked shrimp.

    Hi, Eric Borneman's recipe recommends fresh seafood and say's "frozen seafood should only be used if it has no additional ingredients or preservatives. Precooked seafood is not recommended."
    Just about anything you find at your grocery seafood counter can be used for mush.
