 Hey  Marc!  that's  a  lovely  looking  dish  you  prepare  for  your  fish!  Chuckle   Looks  like  some  kind  of  Halwa  ROFL  Not  to  mention,  you  have  it  in  a  sweet  box!  And  that  it  has  bananas.
 
 Great  explanation  for  shrimp  &  prawns.  But  do  I  really  care?  nope!  Just  munch  up  as  much  as  I  can  when  its  on  my  plate!!!

Ya  I  want  to  see  the  tank  shot  while  feeding.  Do  me  a  small  favour,  fill  absolutely  new  water  in  the  tank  and  clean  the  glasses  properly,  then  drop  the  food.  Take  a  video  if  possible.
 
 Does  the  food  sink  or  it  floats?                

 
 Sir,
 Please  find  the  video  link  in  youtube  .  Hope  this  helps.

 If  you  still  want  to  put  chiken,  then  you  can  bvake  it  and  then  squeeze  out  all  the  fat  using  a  thing  cotton  cloth.  Then  roast  it  dry.  Add  all  the  masal  and  then  mix  it  with  the  main  food

 Thanks  Sir,  but  will  refrain  from  adding  chicken  to  the  mix.  
 Hopefully  my  Video  answered  your  questions

 I  just  wanted  to  ask  if  fish  feel  the  hotness  of  chilies.  If  not  then  you  could  add  more  to  increase  color.  Parrots  (the  birds  i  mean,  not  the  fish)  don't  give  a  damn  how  hot  the  chillies  are.  Anyway  there's  red  bell  peppers  too  nowadays.

 I  am  not  sure  about  this...but  would  show  some  side  affects  I  think..not  really  sure...that  is  a  valid  point.
 Probably  your  water  level  would  decrease  fast.....as  they  would  end  up  drinking  a  lot  of  water...  ROFL

 Why  not  try  red  bell  peppers  first.  I  will  be  trying  out  a  shrimp  and  bell  pepper  mix  tomorrow.  Should  not  affect  the  water  level  too  much!   Very Happy

 So  I  finally  made  my  mix
 
 No  shrimp  at  the  shop  I  went  to  so  I  had  to  make  do  with  basa  fillet.  Not  true  basa  but  our  beloved  beginners  favorites,  the  iridescent  shark,  pangasius  hypophthalmus.  
 
 So  one  10  cm  square  pangasius  
 Just  one  chicken  liver
 One  red  bell  pepper
 One  large  clove  garlic
 One  500  mg  tab  vitamin  C
 One  teaspoon  gelatin
 
 On  a  naked  gas  flame  char  the  bell  pepper  till  it  turned  soft  and  squishy.  The  skin  came  off  easily  afterwards.  Otherwise  the  skin  forms  tough  flakes  in  the  mix.  Ok  for  larger  fish  but  I  am  feeding  gelius  barbs.  Remove  the  seeds  and  stalk,  reserve  the  now  soft  flesh  and  use  in  the  mix.
 
 Soak  the  gelatin  in  2-3  tsp  COLD  or  room  temperature  water  till  it  turns  transparent.  Warm  over  a  water  bath  till  it  dissolves  into  a  transparent  viscous  liquid.  You  can  do  this  much  simpler  but  this  way  gives  perfectly  dissolved  gelatin.
 
 Blend  everything  else  to  a  really  fine  paste  about  the  consistency  of  fine  dosa  batter.  This  does  not  smell  horrible,  just  great  smell  of  garlic  and  bell  pepper.  Basa  is  very  mild  in  smell  and  the  garlic  just  overpowers  the  metallic  iron  smell  of  liver.
 
 Heat  through  for  a  couple  of  minutes  to  coagulate  the  proteins  and  denature  some  of  that  megadose  of  vitamin  c.  I  used  the  microwave.  Mix  in  the  gelatin  liquid.
 
 Pour  into  a  ziploc  bag  and  spread  out  thin.  Allow  the  gel  to  set  in  the  fridge.  Check  after  two  hours.  Taste  check  by  fish.  Then  freeze.  
 
 Adventurous  sorts  can  taste  the  mix  themselves  and  report  (lacks  salt).
 
 Yes  this  makes  a  small  amount,  but  this  was  my  first  time  and  I  did  not  want  to  end  up  witha  huge  lot  of  useless  mix.  I  am  now  looking  for  some  omega  3/6  supplements  to  add  to  my  next  mix.
 
 My  fish  population  of  gouramis  barbs  loaches  combination  loved  it.
 
 Did  NOT  cloud  the  water.  The  gelatin  and  the  coagulation  during  heating  I  believe.
