 Hi  Friend,
 
 After  a  long  I  got  some  time  to  post  my  freezed  DIY  fish  food.
 
 I'm  feeding  this  to,
 Melanotaenia  splendida  australis  (Australian  rainbow)
 M  Bosemani  Rainbow
 Neon  Rainbow
 Neon  Tetra
 Serpae  Tetra
 Black  Phantom  Tetra
 
 Red  cherry  shrimps  RCS
 Indian  Rainbow  shrimp
 
 Contents  of  food
 
 Spinach
 Carrot
 Green  peas  (without  skin)
 Pumpkin
 
 I  cook  veggies  in  pressure  cooker  for  5-10  mins.  Squeeze  water  out  of  it.
 
 Prawns  Fresh  (without  head)
 
 I  boil  these  for  5mins  then  grind  it  in  mixer  for  once  twice  
 
 Garlic  cloves  3-4
 Marrie  gold  petals
 Oats
 
 Un  iodized  salt
 Turmeric
 Red  chilli  powder
 
 Spirulina  5-10ml
 Astaxanthin  10%  2ml
 B-complex  capsules  2
 
 TetraBits,  Algae  waffers  and  some  old  fish  food
 
 add  Oats,  powders,  fish  food  and  to  make  mixture  thick  and  make  it  as  thick  as  possible.
 Again  grind  it  in  mixer  to  make  it  fine.  I  don't  add  water  anytime…need  to  have  as  thick  paste  as  possible.
 

 Gelatine/China  grass  (Agar  Agar)
 I  then  boil  a  cup  of  water  and  put  china  grass.
 china  grass  makes  food  bind  together  very  firmly  as  compared  to  gelatine.
 Grind  this  solution  and  paste  again,  make  sure  you  do  this  fast,  as  soon  as  temperature  of  agar  agar  reaches  to  room  temperature  it  will  start  to  solidify.  
 
 I  then  put  this  paste  in  ice  cube  tray,  give  it  10-15  min  to  cool  off  to  room  temp.  Put  tray  in  freeze  for  24  hours  and  then  after  24  hrs  in  freezer.
 
 While  feeding,  I  let  food  thaw  for  few  mins.  Then  turn  off  filter  and  feed  to  Fish/Shrimps.
 

 
 Note:  
 My  big  fish  (Rainbows)  prefer  more  veggie  diet  than  non  veg  diet,  that  is  why  I  feed  them  more  veggie.  
 I  do  not  measure  anything  except  powders.

 Excellent.  I  was  looking  for  one.  This  is  exotic.
 I  used  to  do  a  strip  down  version  for  my  malawi  chichlids,  shrimps,  palak,  fish  food,  carrot,  cabbage,  brocolli,  peas.  Boil  for  10  mins,  grind  and  freeze.
 
 My  cichlids  loved  it.  Been  a  bit  lazy  of  late.  Thanks  for  the  post.  Will  try  this  out  this  time.
 
 @  jjaaxx447,  some  questions,
 1.  why  marrygold  petals?
 2.  Astaxanthin  is  already  present  in  Red  chilli  powder,  if  I  am  not  wrong.  why  again  seperately.  Also  is  it  available  separately  in  stores,  brand?
 
 Nice  Post

 @shyamhegde:  Thanks   Very Happy  
 
 @sachianu:
 Astaxanthin  is  not  present  in  paprika,  but  paprika  is  rich  in  carotenoid.  There  are  many  carotenoids  in  various  fruits,  flowers  and  animals.
 So  carotenoids  found  in  paprika  and  astaxanthin  are  different,  but  they  both  enhances  red  to  orange  color  in  fish.  Same  goes  for  marigold  which  are  rich  in  orange  to  yellow  color  carotenoids.
 
 Astaxanthin  is  not  necessary,  but  its  fast.
 
 Spirulina  is  also  very  good  for  carotenoids,  it  has  5  major  carotenoids  names  are  not  handy  but  easy  to  get  from  googling.  Its  also  probiotic  so  good  for  health  of  fish

 looks  yum,  though  i  would  have  left  out  the  pharma  additives.
 Will  try  this  by  blending  with  the  beef  heart  formula  that  i  use.

 @Pio:  Do  let  me  know  if  your  fish  like  it.
 
 @valluvar:  
 pharma  additives?  B-Complex?
 Yes  I  was  also  not  sure  if  it  is  necessary.  Not  sure  what  what  vitamins  are  going  through  all  the  veggies  so  just  added  it   Smile

 Abhishek
 
 The  next  time  you  make  the  food  keep  one  cube  out  and  cut  into  long  strips  or  spread  out  on  a  plate.
 Let  it  dry  either  in  room  or  sun.
 Let  me  know  if  it  hardens.  Then  keep  it  in  a  regular  fish  dabba.  Not  in  the  fridge.  With  one  silica  gel  in  it  to  keep  moisture  away.
 I  want  to  see  how  long  it  remains.
 
 After  your  feedback,  then  maybe  I'll  attempt  the  hand  mixer  to  create  pellets.  Like  how  the  butcher  makes  mince.
