In my opinion, do-it-yourself homemade frozen foods are a great way to feed all of the picky fish in your tank, and it also offers a way to find something that all of them like. So, I thought I would write something up and show how I make mine.

I will start by suggesting you find as much fresh seafood as you can from the seafood market at better grocery stores. Some of the frozen stuff has a lot of extra additives that I just don't feel comfortable with, so I typically avoid using any of that.

Here is what is in mine:

From the seafood department at a grocery store-

  • Salmon
  • Scallops
  • Halibut
  • Shrimp
  • Oysters
  • Mussels
  • Squid
  • Clams


Already frozen prepared food-

  • Brine shrimp
  • Mysis
  • Silversides
  • Bloodworms
  • Formula 1
  • Formula 2
  • Prime Reef


Dry foods-

  • Formula 1 pellets
  • Formula 1 flakes
  • Formula 2 pellets
  • Formula 2 flakes
  • Prime reef flakes
  • Brine shrimp flakes
  • Marine complete pellets
  • Marine grow flakes
  • Jullian Sprung's algae
  • 3 different types of Spirulina: red, green & brown

I also add-

  • Phytoplankton
  • Garlic
  • Vitachem®


Throw all of this in the food processor and blend away, trying not to make it into mush. Just blend it enough to get all the pieces so that they are very small. I then take a couple of large cookie sheets, and cut a piece of eggcrate to fit into the cookie sheet, then spread out the food and press it into all of the squares on the eggcrate. Throw it all in the freezer, then take it out the next day, and press out all the new "cubes." I usually put them in bags of 20 and keep them in the freezer.

My fish seem to love it and they eat everything!
