    I do basically the same thing you have done except I split the contents up into three containers and add a capful of super selcon to each batch before blending.
    Why do I split them?
    1st blend is liquefied, literally
    2nd blend is nearly blended as far but a lot of very small chunks left suspended
    3rd blend is only taken down to "medium"/"larger pieces.

    Then it's all mixed back together into one batch, divided and vacuum sealed in bags. The super-selcon is added as a supplement. It provides vitamins which boost the immunity of the livestock.

    By doing it this way I've found that every thing benefits at each feeding. The corals get the particles from the liquefied, tiny fish and inverts get the small stuff, larger fish and inverts get the big chunks.

    I still want to try making DIY food also.

    BUT, when I can get this stuff at my LFS, Although I DIY a lot of stuff, why bother, I can't do better than this stuff:

    Limpits Reef | Slinger, WI

    I wonder what it would cost ME to make this, like this, with all this stuff it in!
