    I don't make pellets-but I do make some homemade food...

    Shrimp- 1 large raw/frozen or steamed (no added salt or other additives) and I smash this up with the side of a knife....
    Garlic-I use 3-5 cloves depending on the size...I crush in a garlic press...roughly half the amount of the shrimp
    Spinach-4-6 leaves..blanched-roughly equal amount of the garlic

    I blanch the spinach and while still hot I smash it with the garlic and add the shrimp and smash it all together with the side of my knife on a cutting should look green...a green garlicky shrimpy paste

    I then feed some and then place the rest in a zip-lock and press out flat and freeze and break off what I need each day to feed....I use the side of my knife and work it and this will thaw it enough to feed......

    Hi OFL :)
    I have my male veil tail, Mr. Bubbles in a 2 1/2 gal tank, heated and with lots of anubias. I feed him Hikari Bio-Gold pellets, 2pellets twice a day. I want to give him some variety in his diet. I used to give him a freeze-dried bloodworm once in a while, but everytime he got very bloated, so I stopped giving them to him. Kytkattin told me that you have a recipe for pellets, and I wondered if you'd be willing to share it with me? :) (you don't have to if you don't wanna...just wondered)
    Thank you soooo very much, I really appreciate it. :)
