Hello Fellow Fishlorians!

I just had a crazy idea. What if I took freeze dried food, rehydrated it, soaked it in VitaChem, then froze it in ice cubes like Hikari frozen foods?

Would this work? Or am I crazy?

Will it be effective after it's frozen? Or if freezer burn were to happen?

You can try it and see what happens. But you will need to make sure it's packed well enough so items like frozen fish doesn't stink up your Vita-Cubes.

I was thinking of putting the mixture into an ice cube tray and wrapping it with Sarah wrap then storing it in my freezer.

Saran wrap won't prevent it from freezer burn. Best to wrap it in foil and put it into zip lock bag.

It's like if you bought a piece of steak, you would saran wrap it, wrap it in foil and then you would bag it.
