Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      There are a couple people here who have blended up several things to make it easy to feed the polys and I can't remember who.

      I am going to be out of town later this month and was thinking that if I did something like that I could portion it out for the husband to feed them so he'd know how much exactly to feed.

      Plus it will likely make it easier for me too over the long run.

      Who knows the user(s) or thread where this was mentioned?

      I feel like @twentyleagues@twentyleagues was one of them mayybe?

      I've done it in the past with my salt affliction. Not recently. I've gone away recently and used a pill caddy to "dose" out the dry and 2oz cups with lids for the fish chunks.

      Back in the day I used a blend that I put clams, tilapia, mussles, squid, ovimar, nori, peas, spectrum pellets with thera a, phytoplankton, and a few various other things. Rough cut fish throw it all in a blender give it a couple zips in there dump it in a zip lock baggie, flatten it out, put it in the freezer. Once frozen you can break chunks off and feed. I had a freind that used a square ice cube tray made out of silicon. Was super cool.

      That sounds like an easy way to feed variety, too.
