    I was watching video about DIY Fish Food. In the video, the guy uses raw fish and meat. Is that ok? Would you boil it before or would there be no concerns?

    I was told you should at least microwave the meat for 30 seconds to kill off any breeding bacteria and the food is still raw

    I think to be on the safe side, I'll boil first then blend. Thanks.

    This is going to be my staple and community blend. It's going to contain:
    Tilapia Fillets
    Shelled Shrimp (possibly)
    NLS Pellets

    I'll make another thread detailing my process when I get to making the food.

    Look forward to reading it! Oh and maybe add some fresh clove garlic as well... great immunity boost!

    I have try this food for 3 - 4 months (not on daily bases 3 times a week) only problem with this food is it cloud the water (pre dip in water solve it) and even cause constipation issue (so i added boiled carrot and peas to solve this issue). Note:- I only try this food with bala sharks, black moor, koi so i dont know about other fish. Hope this may help you.

    Hello; I have feed raw bits of salmon and catfish filet to my tropicals for several decades. I will cut a small section off before cooking the rest for my dinner. I mince the fish before feeding it to my fish.
    So far no issues from doing this.
    I have made small packets of the raw fish, enough to feed for one time, by wrapping them in foil and keeping frozen. This has worked also.
    Good luck

    Thanks for the info skjl. That reassures me that raw is safe.

    If I were going to do this, I'd blend it with peas and turn it into gelatin food.
