So, after hours of cutting up seafood, I have a bowl full of 7lbs of food for my monsters. Currently, my fire eels are the only fish I feed this to, with the exception of any leftover scraps that my vultures get ahold of. I am hoping to get my peacock bass and my endli on this as well. This should last me four to five months, I think. The total cost for all of the seafood was less than $25 at Walmart.

This is still in a bowl in my refrigerator, but tomorrow I will put this mix into ziplock freezer bags in a layer thin enough that I will be able to break it apart for feeding. Then I will freeze the bags and start feeding. I will take some pictures of bagging it up tomorrow and post them here.

Nothing new, really. Just wanted to share what I was working on today.

Here are a few pictures of the final outcome. I filled four gallon freezer bags with 1.5lbs each (measured with my kitchen scale) and one smaller bag with 5oz.

If anybody has recommendations on how to chop this stuff up much quicker, I’m all ears. Lol. Total cost was about $25, but the total time it took to prepare all of this was well over three hours.
