    With your skimmer, it's time you started carbon dosing IMO. Do you have any spare dosing pumps laying about.

    Go vinegar on your water volume, not vodka IMO. Steve Wright is the resident carbon dosing expert.

    never understood why you'd put RODI in a seafood mix. Osmosis wrecks havoc.

    People surely must know you pack saltwater feed in saltwater, not RODI :) Other than that, great list.

    BTW, the salt with also help preserve it.

    yeah i dont know, in a later post on the GIRS forums he said he drained off the excess water. maybe it was just to help with the mixing?

    I wasnt there for the making of the food, but my friend was. he just brought me a 12 oz bag of it.

    I think it would be fine. Just do the research and go slow. John Warner makes great products. His or Dr. Tims would be the brands I would go with. I have read a lot less problems from his than the rest, and Dr. Tims is still new but I have a lot of respect for his bacteria knowledge.

    Heyy I am also planning to keep one aquarium on my table. This information seems useful for me. I was actually seeing which food to be putted in the tank. I will refer to this forum after I keep aquarium on my table.

    Do you mix all of that stuff together in a blender then refreeze it?
