We make a gel food that consists of blended fish, vegetables (carrots, kale, romaine, broccoli),
dulse, spirulina, a variety of vitamins - C and B's.  This does get fed to mostly marine fish, but I
do use it for some of my less finicky natives, surprisingly blackbanded sunfish.

Some of my natives have developed a lot of fat around the internal organs from a high fat diet (frozen
foods) and low activity.

The gel type foods are supposed to help prevent or slow down the fat deposits.
