    I buy raw squid, shrimp, clams, muscles, fish and scallops and blend it all together in a blender with nori, soaked pellets, some phyto, spirulina, some frozen mysis and some fresh garlic. My tank seems to love it, there are pieces of all sizes, for all my different inhabitants

    Anything raw from the ocean that isn't salted will be fine.

    Or cooked, I've found some frozen stuff is pre-cooked & I'm told that's a problem .

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    Yes, NEVER feed your tank anything cooked.

    Dazz I think I'll try a mixture like that too. What about your herbivores?

    There's about 4 kinds of sea weed you can buy from Loblaws. I've only used Nori in my blender mash so I don't know about the others...

    Hey Krugar you use Nori in a blender for your herbivores ... there's something I'll try. Do you omnivorous fish go for the nori also?

    The only fish I have are false percs & they pretty much eat (or at least taste) everything in the tank... sometimes twice.

    Oh also there's toasted & raw Nori. I use the raw (dried) stuff.

    Cheers!
