JEM, are you talking about "european shrimpmix"?You could tell something about your way making it?[/b]

aleksakg, Proably the same one. I don't remember which book I got it from. Maybe 1 of Ad Konings books. Green Peas,Shrimp,tablespoon of Spurilina Powder, teaspoon of liquid Vitamins and a jello Binder. Grind up in a blender or better yet, Food Prossesor. Last time I made, I skipped the jello Binder. Does'nt cloud water to bad. And only for a few minutes.

TA spirulina flake
NLS H20 waffers
Wardly algae wafers
NLS cichlid
Aquarian (normal) flake
Frozen Peas
Frozen spinach with minced prawn/shrimp

(Only had the NLS for the last few months seems to be commonly available here now)

Fed as often as I can. Up to 6 times a day but usualy just 3 times. Very little and a mix of at least 4 every feed. Oh always tank algae available and keep em hungry enough to eat this, if they are not seen grazing, then the food is reduced or not given.

Obsesive?

Then again, I used to make my own European shrimp mix too!

I feed NLS usually twice a day and throw in some bulk spirulina flake every now and then.
It's not unusual for me to fast them 1 day a week. Usually after the water change. I can't stand to see a messy tank so soon after it's been cleaned

Has anyone tried Xtreme cichlid pellets? I've seen a local breeder feeding it to his trophs and they seemed fine. It's slightly less expensive than NLS, it looks the same, different make-up from what i remember on the label. I'm still too nervous to change what isn't broken, anyone tried it?

Thanks!

It's definitely a tempting recipe, just have to remember not to lick the spoon. I wonder if anyone else has bought a food processor for the sole purpose of making fish food? That's all I'd use it for!

Also does anyone have a reccomendation for a liquid vitamin to use in the recipe? I can't find the brand mentioned.

Over here in holland we have liquid vitamin; called fish-tamin the brand is from Sera, you can poor in in the water or let a few drops soak your flakes or thawd fresh-food....
This vitamin is mostly used after spawning and te get stronger, but also after ilness...to get better/stronger..
