I used to make my own frozen from seafood mix at the 99 ranch market and cheep ice cube trays. It was a fair amount of work and ultimately I found a local wholesale source for frozen food, itís the shipping that kills you on frozen.

Fish are not disposable commodities, but a worthwhile investment that can be maintained and enjoyed for many years, providing one is willing to take the time to understand their requirements and needs

Current Tank Info: 625g, 220g sump, RD3 230w, Vectra L1 on a closed loop, 3 MP60s, MP40. Several QTs
