LOL, and I have to get gelatine (not sure if thats available in my country). Any other substitute incase its not available ? Also have to be careful, that I do the mixing & grinding when the wife isnt at home Dont want to create IR issues at home.
HAHA no mutton liver.. Had to look that one up.. Though I'm not a big fan of liver, it sounds pretty good..

Yea peas and carrots sound good, would you cook the carrots down a bit to soften them up? Yea go simple, shrimp, squid and/or some white fish.. Humm gelatin should be easy to find.. Where do you live? There is the agar gar like i mentioned the main post that is probably best.. Or you can go with a vegetable based gelatin..

Ohh, do I need to boil the vegetable before grinding them ? or even the prawns ? Can other freshwater local fish be added too ?

Nope no need to boil.. Was just thinking maybe the carrots a little to soften them up.. I think raw might be a little to hard.. Its possible the frozen carrots are pre cooked..

I have been looking up other posts and maybe could add these too :
1. garlic (acts as a medication)
2. Spinach
3. Brocolli or perhaps cauliflower ???

Some people have even added multi-vitamin tablet. Wonder if one should add medicines for human consumption ?

Bro, you dont know how fussy people can be over food in my country, religious consideration. One wont allow any utensils or appliances used for cooking non-veg stuff to cook veg stuff. Some wont even allow cooking in the same kitchen. But, we have one kitchen and non-veg food Wifey will totally flip over if she hears that I used her utensils n grinder and spoons to cook fish food And keeping that stuff in packets in the deep-freezer

Update on the food.. All 8 fish are eating it on a regular basis.. They seem to love it.. I have had this group for about 3 months now.. This weekend I'm seeing some signs of an upcoming spawn.. I will change the next batch of food and make Spirulina powder one of the main ingredients..

Have made my 2nd batch of food.. For a while I had them on a mix of NLS and my food once a week or so.. Past month they have been strictly on this homemade food.. My newest ingredient is the spirulna powder.. Fry have been eating as well.. They all seem to love it

I have made my own frontosa mix food for the past 3 years. What inspired me was shrimp mix for my tropheus.

With my frontosa food I have never thought to add vegetables. My ingredients were

Frozen shrimp
3 types of mysis shrimp
Squid
Freeze dried krill fines(kensfish)
Brine shrimp
Freeze dried blood worms
Liquid multivitamins
Garlic
Spiralina powder

All mixed with agar agar.

Food seems to float but all my fronts attack it like it was their favorite food. Not messy either.
