    Thanks for the info
    I'll definitely leave that out of my next batch!

    Absolutely. Meds should be used only for specific problems.

    I misread the directions on the bag. It said "feed once every other day as the last meal of the day" but I didn't see the next line down which said "continue for 5 feedings to complete the medication process."

    So thank you guys for pointing that out, I wouldn't have noticed it! I'll probably just dump this batch then.

    That really would be the best way to go. Finish the treatment if you havn't already, then toss it.
    Maybe you know some fish folk that could use up some of it?

    Just got done doing this one that Eddie mentioned... took advantage of this time while my wife is out of town to use her processor (she'd have a heart attack if she knew I used her damn food processor with raw fish )... but I forgot to put the ******* banana in!!!!!!!!!! And it was right next to the processor! Uuggghhhh... ah well, guess I have a banana to put in my lunch for tomorrow.

    1 cup raw tuna
    1/2 cup of sea salmon
    4 shrimps
    4 mussels (occasionally)
    1 tbsp ground pellets
    1/4 cup of Prime Reef flake
    1 tbsp liquid vitamins
    1/4 cup boiled frozen spinach
    1/2 extremely ripe banana
    1 crushed garlic clove
    1/4 tsp paprika

    I just throw everything into the food processor and viola! It has some small bits still visible. Maybe 15-20 seconds max. Then I plop everything in a sandwich size freezer bag and throw it in the freezer. Once frozen, I tear the bag off the block and place it on a chopping board. I cut the block into nice cubes, about the size of a FBW cube and then put all the cubes into a freezer bag and place it in the freezer. It's easy to just grab a cube and throw it in the tank.

    Another larger mix

    I've used carrots in the past, brings out the red/orange color. Its just not what I use any longer.

    Wow, that's a lot of chickens, ;-). How about fish meal... I have used a grow chow that the fish farms use on catfish. Takes awhile but the discus will start to take it.
