    Hi Gary,
    If it looks like Cow poop it may be too processed. Shoot for a HORSE POOP LIKE TEXTURE! ;D

    LOL, Horse poop is right. Mine tends to be chunky. Some pieces are to big for small fish and have to be vacumed out, The adults eat everything.

    My formula is mainly chicken liever and heart:

    1kg chicken liever and heart
    0.5Kg mussels
    0.2kg spinacks (I boil them)
    2 Carrots (also boiled)
    0.25kg shrimp
    8 Calamari rings
    2 egg yolk (boiled)
    60 drops of a baby multivitamine complex
    1 garlic

    I grind all this and frozen in thin plaques between aluminium foils.

    Ok, excuse my ignorence but after it is made and frozen, how does it get fed to the fish. Throw it is frozen or do you thaw a little at a time and feed it to them room temp. Or maybe saute with fava beans and a nice Chianti :P

    Well I feed my beefheart frozen. I am not sure about others but I just throw the frozen cube in and as it starts to melt in the warm water the fish attack it and pull it apart. I know there are some who defrost it first but I have always feed it frozen. I also feed the blood worms frozen.

    I break a piece and wait a few minutes until it gets a paste.

    I drink the wine myself.

    likoma, just a note you may not be aware of: boiling removes most nutrients from vegetables, you may want to try just straight grinding it or using a cheese grater type contraption,

    thanks to everyone for the recipe ideas, very useful, going to try knock something up now

    take care,
    Luca.

    I boil some ingredients to be able to get them soft. I have found that any hard small piece of carrot is refused by the discus. If boiled it is softer and can be converted into a paste instead of granules.

    I will try to grind the carrots and the spinachs to a fine powder and not having to boil them.

    Okay I think I can post the recipe now as the trial period is over, my latest recipe is an attempt to cut out beef heart. I saw a post by one of the board members, mentioning turkey breast 99% ground ( I think it was DiscusNW). I went to the supermarket and purchased the following items.

    Fresh Turkey breast $8.50 US

    Fresh Tuna $4.00 US (a small piece which was an end cut)

    Frozen filleted fish (Can't remember the name but it was salt water 4 fillets to the pack) $3.75 US

    1 garlic clove segment of a fairly big size (from the kitchen)

    1 Box of knox Gelatine.

    My blender is very small so I processed everything one ingredient at a time. I also checked the consistency in a bowl with water to see how the pieces would break up in water.

    After all the ingredients were put together I put some water inside a cup and heated it in the microwave for a quick 30 secs (just to warm it not Boil)
    I then placed some Knox plain gelatine in the cup and stirred it to make a slush.

    A small amount of the gelatine slush was placed into each Glad ziplock bag I then parcelled the mix into each bag making sure that the slush went all through the bag and that there were no trapped air pockets. The bag was placed into the freezer.

    hope this helps the people who cannot get beefheart. My Fish in tank 1 love it, the fish in tank 2 hide and eat it, but I have'nt had a chance to check how the older fish in tank 3 respond hopefully I will be able to update you later.

    This is my latest mix that most of the fish seem to like.

    1lb. 99% fat free turkey breast
    7oz. tuna
    7oz. salmon
    1/4lb HBH meat lovers flake (more or less depending on consistency)
    1 jar baby food bananas
    1 jar baby food peas
    1 jar baby food carrots
    Naturose

    I have also used a pig heart and shrimp recipe. They seem to like this current one a little better.

    The thing that bothers me is salmonella in raw turkey breast. Frank
