Homemade cichlid recipe question

Ok, this is what I bought. I need some advise on how to prepare something from this.I know I need a blender,baking sheets,wax paper.

Fresh Chicken Livers, still looking for beef heart.
sweet potato
cucumber
leaf spinach
garlic clove
peas
2x-packs of unflavored gelatin(4- 1/4 ounce packets per pack)I think this is more than enough gelatin.


Any suggetions of how to prepare a frozen food for my Oscars/Convicts.


THANK YOU!!!!

I'd add some spirulina powder to it. You can buy it at most health food stores.

If you decide to make more in the future, I've found fresh beef hearts for sale at Asian specialty grocery stores.

boiled the liver,pulverized the fish food/spirulina,krill,shrimp,veggies,garlic.

pulverized the cooked liver,mixed it all together (awww smells good!!).It reminds me of vomit when I look at it.

used the boiling water from the pan of liver to disolve the gelatin,mixed it in,poured it into a 1 gallon ziplock and smoothed out the air bubbles,popped it in the freezer. I tasted a piece,Its really good .
