Advice on feeding

We are going from a packed 75 gallon to a 250 gallon. Till now we have been using the frozen cubes, but at a tank that size stocked with fish and corals, what do you all feed them?

Someone told me once to buy a frozen bag of seafood mix at Walmart, toss the i Imentation crab and put the rest in a food processor. Mix with froze twblets and liquid food then freeze in portions.

So this sound correct?

That sounds like it could be a decent carnivore food.

I buy bulk frozen from jehmco.com and mix up enough for a couple days of food and feed the tank. I use to make my own food but it is messy and time consuming. Also I don't think it saved me any money so I stopped going through the hassle

I feed frozen and live foods in my 600.
Live: White and Black worms. Fresh hatched brine shrimp, chopped mussel or clam sometimes. For a treat they get live brine shrimp from the fish store. I gut load it with algae before feeding
Frozen: Rods, Mysis, Calanus, Spinulina Brine Shrimp, Rotifers
Nori
