    Hey!

    The time has come for me to make another batch of homemade frozen fish food. However, last time my DIY food FLOATED! Argh!

    Thanks

    Just FYI last time i used sole fish, garlic, seaweed, seachem nourish, knox gelatin, and some other stuff...

    Sorry I’ve never made my own fish food, hopefully others who have will have some answers for you

    All good.... I will blanch everything, and mix in the gelatin by hand. Supposedly avoids air bubbles

    Do you want ideas for other kinds of food or only frozen food?

    That’s pretty cool! Have you tried YouTube? Maybe they have some recipes specifically for sinking.

    Could you freeze some aquarium rocks into the food?

    I've never made homemade fish food before but how I'm picturing it that might work.
