Re: feeding frozen paste food
Mine has enough gelatin/egg binder that it holds together fairly well in
water. I use a regular cheese grater to scrape a lot of little worm-like
strips into a plastic highball glass of water. I can then go around to the
tanks and feed the shreds with a mini-baster.
One can selectively get the fines for smaller fish and larger strips for the
bigger ones, that way, too.
