As you may know, I was trying to make some gel food that would be fine for my tropicals and also my goldies. I decided to take a shot after reading some articles. It was experimental really. But it turned out to be quite a hit with both the goldies and tropicals. So here is my "recipe" (just a note, I'm terrible at explaining recipes) 1 Can V8 100 % vege juice 2 small-med tilapia boneless fillets(prev. frozen) a banana 1/4 c zucchini 1/4 c frozen peas 1/4 c broccoli 2 baby carrots(we had only one left since the tortoise ate the rest) 3/4 package of frozen chopped spinach block A tiny tiny tiny pinch of powdered multi vit, and vit c 3 envelops Knox unflav. gelatin 3 cloves of finely chopped garlic A blender So using the blender I started off my using 1/4 of the V8 can and tilapia and turning it into a smooth thick nasty smelling paste. Pour this into a fairly large bowl Next add the spinach to the blender, using another 1/4 of the the can of V8. Then I added in the banana and blended it. Pour this into the bowl as well. Next(this took a while to do since the blender is kinda small), blend another 1/4 can(at the end, you will have 1/4 of the can to drink ), with the zucchini, peas, broccoli and carrots garlic and vitamins. I added a splash of it water so it would blend better. Blend away! When its done blended, add it to the big bowl and mix mix MIX! Once you get a good mix done, over low heat, bring the mixture to a simmer. Constantly stir. Turn your heat up to med. Next boil about 1 1/4 c of water and dissolve 3 of the small envelops of gelatin. Once you get it dissolved, add it to you mixture. Turn up your heat to med high and stir away. Make sure you get everything mixed well. Turn off your heat. And let cool for a minute of two(make sure its still hot but not boiling). Pour into zip-lock bags to your desired thickness. Freeze on a flat surface. Then bam! You're ready to go! I'll probably feed this every other day til I run out(i think it'll last a few months)(now I feed 2 times a day). I will keep looking up ways to make it better(like adding shrimp and clams/scallops and more veges). But yeah. Try it out if you'd like The goldies go cray-cray for it. And so do the tropical fish!
