Whoops. I figured it'll keep frozen. I'll try again tomorrow.

I don't puree mine, I like some little chunks, I use the side of a steak knife and smash and roll it around on a cutting board, I do feed some just as soon as I make it, the cats seem to love the chunks of garlic and sometime I will just blanch some spinach and garlic and drop the whole spinach and garlic pieces in the tank and the guppies, ottos, pleco, cats go nuts for it and feed off of it all day with gusto...

Wow missed a whole convo

Again, thanks for this :)

So for ratio (I go strictly by instruction at first tries, lol) I should do:

1 Shrimp : 3 Spinach Leaves : 2 Garlic gloves?

Ohhh I'm so excited, something I can actually maintain! I just have to steal some of my own food :)
Thank you~

I'll try feeding this with the future snails when I get them.

When you freeze this recipe, do you defrost it before feeding or just cut a small chunk off and drop it in? I would think it being frozen wouldn't be good for them....yes? No?

Would it work if I replaced the spinach with basil, the shrimp with toasted pine nuts and added a little olive oil and freshly grated parmigiano cheese?

Isn't that a lil more human cooking then necessary for fish?

When I freeze mine I smash it pretty flat and I break off what I need and use my trusty knife and give it a smash or two on a paper plate and it usually adheres to the knife and I stick the knife in the tank and swish it around so the food fall off. It is so thin that I really don't thaw it per se' and the re-smashing kinda thaws it in a way too.
With my bettas I use the tip of the knife to feed, I will gather a small amount on the tip after I re-smash on the paper plate and give the feeding tap and put the knife tip with food in front of my betta and they will eat if off the knife.
