Preparation of freshwater aquarium fish food in flakes:

  1. All the ingredients are mashed very well until a homogeneous pulp is obtained, adding water until obtaining a semi-liquid consistency.
  2. Prepare a flat bottom tray (serves very well pizza) and spread a thin and uniform layer of the porridge.
  3. Bake with minimum temperature (keep in mind that the vitamins are destroyed with heat) until the pasta dries (taking care that it is not toasted because it would be very difficult to detach). The right point is when we do not observe moist parts in the tray, so we can not separate from the oven until ready.
  4. Remove the capita of food with the help of a spatula. If it becomes difficult to detach, we can resort to the trick of leaving it all night in the open air so that the ambient humidity softens it and it is possible to detach it.
  5. The scales are stored in a well-covered bottle. The quantities of the ingredients can vary according to the needs of our fish. If we have fish of carnivorous habits, we can reduce the vegetables; Also for fish rather vegetarians, we increase the amount of vegetables and we reduce proportionally the quantity of meats. We can make formulas with stimulating properties of the appetite adding a spoonful of vitamin complex that we can get in the pharmacy.
