Any of you ever try making/feeding Gel foods to your fish?
I've been trying to give my Goldfish a good balanced veggie/protein diet and noticed a good website with gel foods. Never knew you could use gelatin to make the food for your fish but I think i'm going to try. Check it out:
Recipe for Success
As a special treat, make your goldfish "gel food." Gel food is easy for you to prepare and easy for your goldfish to digest. Feed your goldfish the gel food only in conjunction with goldfish food that has been formulated for their nutritional needs.
All that is needed are: a packet of unflavored gelatin, an empty ice cube tray, and a 2.5 oz jar of baby food in a vegetable flavor such as carrots, peas or green beans.
Pour 1/4 cup of cold water in a small sauce pan. Pour the packet of gelatin in the water and stir over low heat until the gelatin dissolves.
Add 3/4 cup of water, continuing to stir until blended. Add the baby food and stir until it is mixed thoroughly. Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and let it cool for about half an hour.
Refrigerate the mixture. It will solidify in a few hours. When you are ready to feed your goldfish, take out a cube and cut it into small strips. Your fish will probably take it right from your hand.
One tray is more than enough for two 4- to 5-inch goldfish for a week. Discard any leftovers after a week to prevent spoilage.
