    Here's an update... I tried substituting catfish for "white" fish. My discus won't eat it at all. Don't remember the name of the specific kind I picked up, but I'm staying away from bottom dwellers now.

    Also using a freshwater fish will allow transfer of any parasites or disease

    Those of you using Banana, are you putting the banana in whole or are you peeling it and using the inside/skin?

    My daughter has a Ninja Blender. Would that be good enough to chop up a beef heart to make these recipes?

    What´s your take on using liver? Should it be cooked or raw?
    Thanks for any input.

    Liver is mostly used as a binder and if you cook it then it loses the ability to bind.
