If your fish enjoyed your first foray into the DIY saltwater fish food space, consider branching out and getting a few other seafoods under your belt. It is inexpensive and so easy to do. Just about any seafood will work–buy whatever seafood is on sale. You want to only use saltwater fish and shellfish to feed your saltwater fish–because it will be the most nutritious for them. Clams, mussels, scallops, oysters, ‘catch 0f the day’ fish meat, almost any saltwater seafood will work. Once you have a feel for what kinds of foods your fish prefer, buy a few different types of seafood, ball them all together, and shave off some from a different section every day–so that you feed your tank with a variety of nutritious foods. Add some nori, or even a vitamin supplement like for an added boost of nutrition. But keep in mind, simply freezing some shrimp, scallops, or clams and using a cheese grater (or lemon zester) to create fine pieces is perhaps the easiest way to make DIY saltwater fish food ever!

Wasn’t that easy? It was probably too easy. While I have personally had good success feeding my fish this way, there have been occassions where the fish were reluctant to eat the frozen offering–start off by feeding only small amounts, and be careful to remove any uneaten food, to avoid fouling the tank water. Also make sure that the saltwater fish food is properly thawed before feeding, as the temperature of the food does appear to impact appetite. This method is gentle, safe and easy way to introduce your new saltwater fish to your home aquarium.
