I was wondering if anyone keeps their fish food in the freezer.
Today I opened a 60g container of New Life Spectrum Betta Pellets. Volume would be about 2/3 cup. I also have Hikari Betta Bio Gold, and Omega One Betta Buffet Pellets that I have been alternating. (I also feed frozen bloodworms once a week, and frozen brine shrimp once a week) Sometimes I feed a crushed shrimp pellet from my nano fish's food.
I was thinking that alternating foods would make a balanced diet.
I only have one betta.
To keep the food fresh, I was thinking of putting a little of each in a pill dispenser. The kind marked with days of the week. Thought it would be convenient. Then, freezing the rest in the original containers until needed.
Same with nano fish food. They get NLS Small Fish Formula, crushed shrimp pellets, Hikari guppy food, and the same frozen food the betta gets.
I freeze the dry spices I use since I am only one person and it would take a long time to use them. I only keep a tablespoon or so out in little jars, rest is kept frozen. I have one cat, but buy his food in 15 pound bags. Since it has no preservative, I put it in sandwich ziplock bags and freeze it. I get a little bag out when needed. So much less $ per pound when you buy bigger bags.
Am I being to fussy? Seems it would take my betas lifetime to eat all this food....
