    I mix

    1 pack frozen cyclopeeze
    1 pack krill (shells removed)
    1 pack silversides (tails cut off)
    1 pack Hikari Marine-s (to dry out the mix)
    1 Pack Dry Zooplankton
    1 Pack Dry Phytoplankton
    5 green algae sheets
    5 red algae sheets
    10TBSP live baby brine shrimp soaked in Selcon+Zoecon for 24 hours (about 5000 brine shrimp)
    30ml Garlic Gaurd
    30ml Marine Zoe

    My fish go crazy for this stuff. This chunky mix sinks slowly and does not turn into a could of dust. I prefer to feed with the pumps off.

    I would like to add dry chlorella and spirulina to the mix but that stuff is hard to find it seems in pure form.

    But my mix has everything. Extremely high in protein, omega-3 EPA&DHA, fiber, vitamins and minerals and antioxidant rich.

    I'll post pictures of the process next time i make some which should be in a month or so

    If you have a Trader Joe's around you, they carry a seafood blend (shrimp, calimari rings & bay scallops) that says on the packageing "No Preservatives, No Sodium Tripolyphosphates, & No Artificial Colors or Flavors". As an added bounus it was fairly cheap at under $6 for 1lb.
