I took a cue from Clownfishes by Joyce Wilkerson and made up my own special clownfish food last night. I took some (all uncooked) flounder, tappani (or whatever it's called), scallops, shrimp, and squid, mixed that with lemon juice and a little bit of RO water. Put it all in a blender, then poured it into some old, used frozen fish food trays.

Just used the first cube tonight and they're going bonkers over it. High in vitamin C and a good source of carbohydrates. Not to mention the protein from the fish itself.

I'll continue with the veggie flakes in the morning, but if they keep this up I'll start making some variations of this formula.

It adds the vitamin c and the carbs. Not too much, though - it's citric so it is acidic.

They love it so far. I need to mix it better next time, though; right now I need to break it apart after it defrosts.

Never heard of that. What's the gelatin add?

I heat some of the liquid and add the unflavored gelatin (the heated liquid dissolves the gelatin),...then add it to the total mixture....It will help your home made food be a little firmer ...so to not be as messy in your tank......and no worries....its fish safe.......

Sounds like sushimi to me!!! Can I just say something here!! Gelatine not good choice has many bio products for human consumption and not sutable for fish. The best way is to do all natural supplements to the mixture and use natural fish or invert fats to gell with, Such as natural fish oils from the orientall section of the grocery store. And must be a clean product with no artificial additives in the oil.
