Food! We need it and so does fish, i was interested in making my own fish food for my upcoming FW Community tank and wanted to know what would be a good recipe for Kribs (all the other fish can be picked to fit the recipe)

I have compiled a list of ingredients i thought would be a good choice but i don't even have a tank yet, only a ridiculous amout of readings floating around in my head, so what would i know!

cucumber
zuchini
assorted lettuces
broccoli
spinach
squash
green beens
corn
carrots
yams
apples
grapes
oranges
sweet potatoes
potatoes
spiralina
shrimp shells and all
blood worms
tubifex
wholemeal bread
assorted vitamins (Vitamin b group and c
and gelatin as the body.

is this list ok. to much. not enough. did i miss anything? or is anything here bad for kribs?

assorted lettuces not really nutritious enough, wholemeal bread isn't needed. Basically you can use the rest of the ingrediants, divided into different sets and make a variety of different foods. Basically you just need 3 to 4 different veggies, some protein, and the gel to make one type. then use the other ingrediants to make other types. Feed on different days to vary their diets.

I have several different recipes that I use. Depending on the fish will determine the ingrediants in that batch.

Good mix ideas there, ditto all that Susan said! I also use beef heart in the mix, but one needs to be careful with that as it may contain animal fats which are not suitable for fish. Also I find that fish is another good ingredient as most are carnivorous.

thats cool i will just make a lot of different combos! any ingredients that would do best together?

and kitty i read in a book that something in the beef heart was toxic? and that something in the fish i guess it was the oils blocked or took aways from the nutrients of some other foods? I don't know does this make since to you.

Beef heart is good, but needs to be in moderation, like as a treat. Any combo of veggies is good, types of meat to use, Shrimp, salmon, whitefish, sardines, base how much on what you are feeding. Fish that are herbivores can use a little protein but not that much. That goes for several cichlids and livebearers.

could i put the slurry (before the gelatin) into a squeeze tube, the ones used for feeding corals, and feed fry like that?

and have any of you guys heard of agar-agar, its supposed to be seaweed based instead of animal based like gelatin, i'm wondering because i could then control the amount of animal protein the fish get.

Yep, agar would be a usable substitute as it is still gelatinous and unlike gelatin itself is not produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen (which is an animal protein).

i have come up with a list of foods. One for monday-saturday. all vegies and fruit up until saturday when they get their fix of animal protein. sunday will be a fasting day so they can hopefully work off some of their meaty foods. will this work or just plain stupid?

Leaving a day without any feeding is very beneficial to most fish in any case and I will quite regularly only feed them 4-6 days a week: this lets their digestive systems clear, increases their activity and prevents cases of obesity. I used to feed my fish twice a day every day leaving only one food free every two or so weeks, but my new job meant that I had to reduce the feeding as I often leave before their lights come on and return after they go off.. this is great for the nocturnal plecos, but the other fish are generally sleeping at those times. As a result, I now feel that less feeding is more beneficial for most fish on an everyday basis as in nature they, in a lot of cases, will either feed constantly on much smaller amounts or will sometimes not even feed every day.

Cyber Monday has a more enjoyable origin
There is still no exact Crocs Shoes statement about the origin of the word "Black Friday".Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Apricot The legendary law was that the Philadelphia police created such a word with a negative meaning in the 1950s.Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Black After Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, due to the annual Army/Navy American Football Tournament held in Coach Logo Monogram Tote In Apricot Philadelphia on Saturday, hordes of people gathered in the city on Friday, and the stores used this opportunity to offer great merchandise to attract people to shop.Coach Logo Monogram Shoulder Bag In Black What the police are facing is a long, busy job. It was not until the 1980s that Black Friday began Coach Logo Monogram Hobo Bag In Coffee http://www.coachoutletonlinefactory.com/shoulder-bags-c-1/coach-logo-monogram-shoulder-bag-in-black-sblni-p-120.html to win a broader and better reputation.
But the origins of Cyber Monday are clearer and only appeared a decade ago.Coach Logo Charm Hobo Bag In Rose The term was coined in 2005 by the National Retail Federation to describe Monday after Thanksgiving. At that time,Coach Logo Charm Satchel In Brown people continued to shop online after returning to work.
There are fewer ads on Cyber Monday
During Thanksgiving, many people already know the Coach Charm Satchel In Brown best deals on Black Friday before going out to shop. This is because retailers posted Black Friday ads early in October.Coach Monogram Crossbody Bag In Khaki http://www.coachoutletonlinefactory.com/satchels-c-2/coach-charm-satchel-in-brown-emqzf-p-23.html However, we see relatively few ads on Cyber Monday, probably because retailers already have an insight Coach Monogram Crossbody Bag In Black into which merchandise traders will choose.
Say goodbye to the opening of the store
The number of retailers' door-to-door (Doorbusters)Coach Monogram Backpack In Apcicot ads is decreasing.Coach Factory Outlet Store Since Cyber Monday is the day of online shopping. Many people believe that there is no reason Nike Lebron Soldier 10 X Shoes black to squeeze the door to the local Bestbuy store.
In general, “opening the door to buy” is dying.NIKE KD 8 EP Keivn Durant Shoes Sprite Shoes In-store consumers have been frustrated by the fact that low-inventory items are out of stock immediately,NIKE KD 8 EP Keivn Durant Shoes Purple as these items are sold out in a matter of seconds. Retailers are also beginning to listen to shopper feedback.
Today, it is common for retailers to NIKE KD 8 Breast cancer Shoes launch the so-called Black Friday “Open the Door” on the Internet.
Most sales are completed in less than 24 hours
One of the most distinctive features of Cyber Monday may Nike Lebron Soldier 10 EP Shoes black yellow be the transitibility of its transactions, especially compared to Nike Lebron Soldier 10 X Shoes black gold Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Most of the transactions on Cyber Monday ended on NIKE Lebron James 9 Soldier Sprite the same day.
There are more "instantaneous" offers on Cyber Monday,Nike Kyrie Irving 2 blue yellow such as Amazon's lightning discount. Whether using a laptop, a mobile phone or a tablet device, consumers often stare at the screen Kyrie Irving Shoes because the merchant offers are short and the buyers compete fiercely.
Online sales on Cyber Monday are the hottest
Cyber Monday is the largest online Cheap Nike Lebron 15 shopping day of the year, generating $3.45 billion in sales last year, an increase of more than 12% from the same period last year. Among them, mobile shopping (that is, shopping with mobile devices) Women's Crocs Crocband Flip Candy Pink has played a lot of roles. Mobile shopping accounted for 47% of retail site visits and 31% of sales.
Different stores will shine
Black Friday is usually dominated by retailers such as Best Buy,Men's Crocs Crocband Flip White Kohl's, and Target, and on Cyber Monday, people will see that some lesser-known businesses are more attractive to consumers. .Flip Flops For Women Stores like Crocs and Levi have offered real discounts. So don't be surprised if you find Clogs For Womensomething unexpected and cheap.
Fashionista loves Cyber Monday
Just like the Olympic season, each shopping festival Flip Flops For Men has different shopping activities. During Thanksgiving and Black Friday, it is more suitable for buying electronic products, and Cyber Monday is reflected in other products.Women's Crocs Baya Clog Pepper The specials for clothes and shoes are good, and retailers will, in many cases, launch unsold Black Friday offers, and fight again.
Beauty products on Cyber Monday are often overlooked,Clogs For Men but they are great. Or you can buy new kitchen supplies.Men's Crocs Bistro Graphic Clogs It is worth mentioning that on Cyber Monday, you can also book unexpected hotel deals.
