Does anyone make their own foods for their fish? Besides like cucumber, like cooking meat or something. If anyone makes their own fish food, let me know. I want to know how to make it! Thanks.
Where do I get beef heart mix? Also how often should I feed the beef heart? The only beef heart I've seen is the frozen cubes. Can I get ingredients from market?? bubble1807
Also you can put vitamins in? How do you know how much to put??
Is freezing foods the best?
They clearly said they wanted to MAKE their own... Many foods are made from animal fats, I mean what do some fish eat in the wild when something falls into the water. Also all the fat and veins are removed and it is heart so it's not classed as animal fat. Many very and I mean very experienced aquarists highly suggest beef heart so stop making a fuss, it's your own opinion, so keep it.Why would you buy expensive cubes, thaw them and refreeze them? Beef and goat heart were ingredients favoured until the 1960s, because better alternatives were not available unfrozen. The invention of cheap jet travel made the product obsolete.
Fish cannot digest mammal fats, so they made do with the lean heart, an imperfect food but the best they had.
I make snail jello for the snails.
For carnivores some like brine shrimp, and blood worms. I have heard of people breeding those pretty easily and inexpensively for their fish to eat.
That's quite a debating point there, bubbles. Fish diets have been intensely studied, through stomach content analysis from wild fish. Presenting up to date info based on research is not making a fuss. I'm just trying to be helpful, as you are.stop making a fuss, it's your own opinion, so keep it.
Back to the point, I'm not too sure what vitamins I put into it but if I remember I will update you! !
