    I feed my fish an assortment of fruits and veggies as supplements. They like - no, LOVE - watermelon, orange slices, kale, baby spinich and whole heads of romaine lettuce. They get shrimp and/or "Krab" at least twice a week. And I give them hopped-up Izeki paste at least 3 times a week during the warmer weather (which around here is most of the time). I'm trying to make the Izeki stretch out, or they'd get it more often.

    They like the different stuff, and I introduce them to other goodies as I have them.

    Last winter was Hikari Wheat Germ, coming out of winter was Hikari Staple, and now it's Hi-Silk. This fall and winter I will probably switch to Hikari Saki Multi-season.

    They are frozen, and I just dump a bunch into a drinking glass and fill it with hot water to thaw, then I pinch everyone to break the skin when I through them in.


    Only about half my fish like pea's, and the other half like shrimp, can't please them all...........

    Gaz, Izeki is a paste food. My question to the other folks is, where do you find Izeki? Most place seem to be out of it.
