I usually feed my fish frozen food on a daily basis.

Yum yum! I feed mostly Hikari brand stuff, but to get their frozen foods I have to drive to Indy :sorry: I bought a lot of freeze dried stuff before I read about introducing air into the gut, so I’m thinking I’m going to get some Repashy Soilent Green and put them in that. Like fruit in jello :joyful:

Northfin has superior Ingredients to many, worth the extra cpl $ imo.

Ok, so I’ve seen tons of posts hating on that, but when I first learned about frozen food I thought why wouldn’t you do that??? Seems closer to what they’d eat in the wild. I don’t know, I’m new to most of this.:happy:

I feed flake food, bug bites, veggies and frozen food. (different varieties of each) I like to mix it up.

That's because I have wild caught fish. The only fish that I don't feed frozen food is by bristlenose pleco.

I go to the reef at keystone and 56th street I always put my cubes in a cup with some water and fully let them melt for atleast 5-7 min, then I'll pour off the top layer of water and blast them with a blast from the faucet to make sure the cubes are totally broken up and dethawed

I agree with this

Variety. Depending on the fish, I would feed bloodworms, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, beefheart, spirulina, BBS, daphnia, or cyclops.
I feel like the variety is better to keep them mixed up

so, new to this...so far have fed only the dried flakes and algae tabs. I have zebra danios, platys, a mystery snail and cory cats. Is there something frozen that would work for most of them without investing a lot of dollars at this point? Also my tank is still cycling...fishin so can I still feed frozen food?

Once it's in the tank it's pretty much fair game lol no real way of controlling who eats what

Ha! I go to The Reef, too :) Their posts on Facebook were so awesome I was like sold! I got most of my fish there, and some frozen blood worms. I accidentally got baby brine shrimp instead of regular, but I’ve read they’re more nutritious because of the yolk, so whatever. I found some San Francisco Bay frozen Emerald Entree at the Petsmart near me, and my fish like it. It’s got mysis shrimp in it and I guess those are more nutritious than brine shrimp. I’ve seen brine shrimp called “popcorn” a lot. So, I guess they’re like fish junk food. I take some tank water out with a small glass, put whatever frozen food I’m going to feed in it, and then drop it in with a pipette/turkey basted/syringe. Or sometimes I just dump in the whole glass of bbs and watch the free-for-all.
