What do you feed your fish daily?

Hello everyone,

I'm wondering what everyone is using to feed their fish on a daily basis, or majority of the time. I mainly use Hakari small pellets.

I feed two or three times a week. It's usually either flake, pellets or mysis shrimp. I alternate.

I make my own mix and freeze it. I use nori, scallops, squid, octopus, clams, shrimp and whatever else the seafood dept has in stock. I supplement with large and small pellets.

I've been making my own frozen too. I get fish and shrimp from a sushi chef friend of mine. Then I get squid, octopus, clams and whatever else looks good from Assi or Super H.

I freeze it all and then run it through the food processor while frozen. Then mix it all up adding some roe, flake, nori, Selcon along with some other supplements. The fish love it but getting the food processor down is an art. The last batch might be chopped up just a little to fine.

I'll then alternate this mix with Mysis while supplementing with a variety of pellets and sheets of nori.

Mine eat at the old country buffet....

My tank gets pellets, flake, rods, lrf, chopped clams, brine, gut loaded mysis, selcon soaked nori, chunk silversides, veggie packs, blood worms, reef roids, and anything else to widen their diets.

I alternate what I feed, no set schedule.

Lots of skimming and gfo.
