Emerald Entree-any good?

Does anyone feed this? I was thinking of getting some. I currently feed frozen brine shrimp, bloodworms, krill, Reef Caviar, beef heart, and veggie flakes, tubifex worms and shrimp pellets, on a rotating basis. Oh, and betta and cichlid pellets, as I have some of those. Would Emerald Entree be a good thing to add to what I already feed?

10 gallon- 8 Harlequin Rasboras, 1 female betta.

20 gallonH - 1 Peacock Gudgeon, 2 Skunk Cories, 1 Sparkling Gourami. , one male betta, 2 nerite snails.

55 gallon - 3 Turquoise Rainbows, 1 Boesemani Rainbow, 2 Australian Rainbow, 4 Gold Dust mollies, 1 L. Dorsigera, 2 White Cloud Mountain Minnows, 1 Honey Gourami, 3 Cherry barb, 1 Koi Angelfish, 4 female betta.

I do use it because it's got plankton, spinach, lettuce and other veggies added that you don't get with the other frozen options. The fish love it

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Thanks, Romad. I'm having trouble locating it. haven't seen it at my LFS or Petco or Petsmart. I hate to order it online too, as I'm afraid it would be thawed out by the time it got here.

Forget ordering it online - they have to ship next day on frozen food so it will cost you two or three times as much as the actual food. I don't see it often but grab it when I do. I'm pretty sure I get it at Petco

Oldfishlady told me how you can make your own fish food. She used raw shrimp, blanched spinach, and raw garlic all mashed into a paste. You can add other leafy greens to the mix. Put the paste into a ziploc bag and freeze it. Then you can break off the amount you want and thaw it in some tank water. My fish loved it!

Thanks, Romad. I'll try making my own if I don't see it the next time I go to Petco, which will be in a few days.
