    Hello Fellow Fishlorians!

    This is my first ever article, but it won’t be my last.

    This is my recipe for Goopy Food(Get the pun?)

    The measurements aren’t exact because I just threw together good ingredients to make it.

    Romaine Lettuce
    Peas(Important to keep the food goopy)
    Green beans
    Tank water(for ease of mixing)

    Step 1:
    Measure the ingredients. I eyeballed my ingredients, but I ended up with 20 shrimp(chopped up into small bits), 1 snack baggies of mixed veggies(I used a frozen bag or mixed peas, carrots, and green beans. Fill it until it almost bursts the bag.), 3 leaves of romaine, 3 slices of zuchinni, around 20 earthworms(freeze them first if you’re scared of worms), 1 tilapia fillet(also cut this one into small pieces), and 3 cloves of garlic(I kept it mixed with the shrimp.)

    Step 2:
    Blend! I did my food in 2 different blends. The first blend was of just the meat(shrimp with garlic, earthworms, and tilapia fillet. Next, I blended all of the veggies.(Peas, carrots, green beans, zuchinni, lettuce.)

    Step 3:
    Mix! I mixed my food in a large bowl. I put Saran Wrap over the bowl so none of the food is wasted. If you want sinking food, mix the food slowly and not allowing air in. If you want floating food, mix the 2 blends again in a blender.

    Step 4:
    Freeze! I used gallon bags to where the food is thin enough to take out the bag and snap a piece off easily. Keep it in the freezer and feed it quickly. Do not allow it to thaw and freeze over and over again. After a year, the food should be thrown away due to freezer burn.

    Extra ingredients(ones that I didn’t use but could be added easily):
    Frozen foods(bloodworms, daphnia, brine shrimp, etc.)
    Crushed pellets

    Hopefully you liked my first ever article!

    This is perfect for me. I currently have some australian natives in bass and a sleepy cod and I'll be using this as a guide.
    Thank you.

    This sounds amazing! My fish live these bug bite pellets which have salmon and fly larvae in it. I can't wait to make this for them too! I know they will go crazy for it.
    I'm also very pleased it makes floating and sinking food.

    Its a nice mix of all needed important stuff. Good immunity, good nutrition, good cleanliness, with a lovely taste. (No i didnt taste it!) I will also love to add a crab knucle to it. And some fish meat. My current fish loves crab!

      Sounds like your fish will enjoy the food even more! I would add a little bit more peas to keep the consistency.

    Sounds wholesome nourishing easy and I think fish would love it. I’d have to find a sub for the earthworms though. I couldn’t hurt one. I truly think this is worth giving a try. Thank you!

      To substitute earthworms, how about frozen bloodworms?
