Next Meeting Idea

I would like to do a workshop for making our own fish food. I will go to the store and buy all the squid, clams, spirulina powder, etc.. we can let it marinate in the goods at the meeting while we bring our blenders, then package it up in cubes and freeze it.. ppl can come pick it up the next day when its frozen.

what you guys think? i can start collecting borneman/calfo's recipes online...
I'm in....always wanted to make a recipe, but my wife would kill me if I used the blender for fish food...LOL
Where will it get frozen? Do you mean you will lay the money out initially then whoever is in will split the cost? Sounds good to me.
I really want you to do a DIY esp the airstone skimmer thing. Although this one sounds interesting too, especially the idea of buying stuff in bulk people could spilt costs. However, Wasn't there some talk about the meeting being at a public school?
I don't really follow a recipe, I just go to the fish market, and the bait shop, pick up what ever's around, and gring it all up. I do like to add Nori to the mix, and I normally use Selcon in the water as it thaws. In all honesty, I've come to find that making my own fish food is very time consuming, and I think the best thing in it is Cyclop-Eeze. I've taken to buying the Cyclop-Eeze in large blocks, and adding some frozen Mysid, and what ever Les has in the freezer at the time.

where is the meeting this month? i have been out of the loop for a little while.

Mods if you can make next meeting thread a sticky please?

Also, we'll have enough to do at this next meeting at the school and I wouldn't want to trash the place with fish guts flyin' around, but we could certainly do it for the May meeting, so we could consider it the topic for the May meeting.
I think Joe just told me to stick it! :lmao:
Consider it done :D
Atlantis will provide the frozen cyclops, frozen rotifers, frozen shrimp, frozen mysis.
There is also squid, clam and a variety of fish available as well if someone has a recipe.
