 Hi  All  
 
 I  have  a  quartet  of  angels  ranging  from  1  cm  to  2  cm  size.  They  are  feeding  well  on  micropellets  and  growing.
 
 However  I  am  hoping  to  wean  them  on  to  a  more  varied  and  nutritious  diet.  I  tried  a  shrimp  mix  as  below:
 
 1  cup  shelled  shrimp
 1  cup  parboiled  peas
 about  half  a  teaspoonful  of  unflavoured  gelatin  dissolved  in  a  small  quantity  of  hot  water
 I  figured  I  would  add  the  fancy  stuff  after  getting  the  basics  right.
 
 Standard  procedure  for  mixing  and  freezing  in  plastic  freezer  bags.
 
 Now  my  problem  is  that  the  mix  is  too  coarse  -  the  angels  would  gobble  it  up  and  then  spit  out  the  stuff  after  about  3-5  minutes  of  really  thoughtful  chewing  (you  have  seen  that  thoughtful  look  fishes  get  when  they  chew?).  I  tried  a  thinner  paste  but  you  all  know  what  happens  -  the  mix  started  to  disperse  into  the  water.
 
 Any  workarounds  -  other  than  a  suggestion  to  buy  bigger  angels.  There  were  hundreds  of  these  buggers  in  the  LFS  and  my  wife  ...  you  know  the  story.

 Deepesh  I  have  grown  angels  of  same  size  to  breeding  size  in  about  6-8  months.
 I  fed  them  tetra  bits,  you  can  powder  them  for  juvinles  of  that  size,  just  alternate  it  with  live  feed  every  then  &  now.  Change  to  pellets,  flakes  for  variety.
 Using  this  diet  i  have  successfully  bred  them  unfortunatley  the  eggs  did  not  hatch.
 I  have  never  tried  any  DIY  food,  other  than  boiled  peas  &  spinach  for  goldies,  it  is  too  much  wotk  for  me.
 What  I  am  trying  to  say  is  that  you  actually  don't  need  to  go  through  all  that  trouble,  but  you  will  have  to  get  the  propotion  of  gelatine  just  right  to  arrive  at  a  consistancy  to  suit  you.

 I  would  suggest  bhm,  as  I  have  raised  angel  fries  on  bbs  and  weaned  them  onto  bhm,  and  grown  them  out  to  young  adult  size.
 
 Yes,  bhm  will  cloud  the  water.  Feed  them  heavily,  and  change  water  at  once  a  day,  thats  if  you  want  to  see  them  grow  fast.
