 Hi  Beta:
 
 1.  I've  been  feeding  this  since  6  months.  No  bad  effects    :lol:  
 2.  The  binder  is  baby  food!!
 3.  It  will  cloud  water  if  put  in  excess.....which  means...
 
 Feeding  instructions:
 
 Assuming  that  the  size  of  one  thread  is  2mm  in  thickness  and  10cms  in  length,
 
 Feed  only  *one*.  (breaking  it  into  bits)

 Hello  Shishir:
 
 This  is  acceptable  by  most  fishes......esp.  those  which
 eat  plant,  plant  derivatives,  and  algae.

 Hi  Nag,
 
 Interesting  recipe.  I  suggest  you  add  some  gums  to  bind  all  these  together.  Many  types  of  gums  are  available  in  kirana  shops  catering  to  north  Indians.  You  need  to  dissolve  these  in  very  little  water  &  add  to  the  paste.

 Agar  Agar    is  an  excellent  binder  and  edible  too.  I  know  of  friends  who  use  agar  agar  to  bind  their  home  made  fish  food.  The  food  never  disintegrates  even  after  considerable  time  under  water.
 
 Now  my  wife  is  beaten  and  bowled  !!!  :twisted:    :twisted:    :twisted:

 Hi  Madan,
 
 I'll  definately  talk  about  this  to  your  wife  and  many  more
 interesting  recipes    :wink:  ;when  I  come  over  to  see  your  mammoth  marine  tank.
 
 I  tried  to  find  Agar  Agar  (food  grade)  at  Nilgiri's  and  Food  World,  they  haven't  heard  about  it!!
 
 Any  source  that  you  know??
 
 Thanks  for  the  tip.
 Regards,
 _______

 Agar  Agar  is  supposedly  available  at  Nilgiris  on  Brigade  road.  My  wife  saw  it  there  some  time  back.
 
 You  can  try  Monday  to  Sunday  or  other  supermarkets.  The  tough  part  is  finding  it.  You  don't  need  more  than  a  couple  of  grams  when  you  do  find  it.
 
 BTW  my  huge  tank  is  not  going  to  be  Marine.  I  have  no  knowledge  of  keeping  Marine  tanks.

 Everyone  who  wants  to  use  agar  agar....  I  got  this  info  from  my  Friend  Loh  Kwek  Leong  of  Singapore.
 
 QUOTE:
 
 But  I  can  tell  you  what  I  can  recall  from  memory.    The  agar  agar  is  the  
 secret  ingredient  that  keeps  the  fish  food
 from  disintegrating  when  it's  thrown  into  the  water.    It  binds  the  food  
 together.    To  prepare  the  agar,  boil
 it  and  wait  for  it  to  cool.    It  will  harden  when  it  gets  too  cool  so  you  
 have  to  work  fast.    Your  fish  food  must
 be  ready.    When  the  agar  is  cool  enough,  mix  them  with  the  food  and  insert  
 the  food  into  those  plastic  trays
 that  are  used  to  hold  ice  in  the  refrigerator.    Normal  ones  won't  do  as  the  
 holes  are  too  big.    You  have  to
 find  the  trays  with  holes  that  are  smaller  or  else  your  food  cubes  will  be  
 too  large.    As  soon  as  a  tray  is
 filled,  put  it  into  the  freezer  compartment  of  the  refrigerator  and  let  it  
 cooled.

 Dear  Nag  and  Madan  Ji
 
 I  prepared  the  said  vegetarian  recipe  this  week  end.  Unfortunately..  some  thing  was  wrong  in  my  preparation.    
 
 The  recipe  even  after  adding  with  the  baby  milk  powder,  still  appears  paste  like  and  I  could  not  make  in  to  finer  bits.  Its  all  lying  in  my  freezer.  
 
 Can  any  one  please  syggest  me  how  do  I  make  it  hard  and  usable.  I  think  I  can  not  make  that  in  to  finer  threads  of  some  mm  size.  Is  there  any  other  way  of  using  it.  
 
 I  just  could  made  a  small  pellete  size  ones,  made  them  freezed  and  just  put  couple  of  them  in  the  tank...    But  I  understood  it  started  melting  and  getting  mixed  with  the  water.  
 
 Can  any  one  please  tell  me  how  do  I  use  this  250  grams  of  solid  paste  for  my  fishes.(  completely  full  of  all  the  protenicious  stuff)
 
 If  there  is  some  way  I  can  make  use  of  this...  please  also  let  me  know  common  names  of  the  ingredients  that  need  to  be  added  to  this  extra.
 
 Nag  can  you  please  give  me  your  phone  number??
 
 Regards

 Hi  Sharma:
 
 My  First  Receipe  (with  Baby  Milk  Powder)  requires  lot  of  finess  in  making
 and  getting  required  consistency.  It  also  clouds  the  water  if  fed  in  excess.
 
 Hence  after  about  8  months  of  its  use,  I've  switched  to  the  Second  Preparation;  which  most  of  us  can  prepare  easily:  
 And  with  Agar  Agar,  disintegration  does  not  happen.
 
 You  can  contact  me  on  94480-81681
