cooking recipe for catfish

Post by kiwidu21 »


given that Repashy for fish (and some of those for reptiles) have become impossible to find in France because of animal meal (same problem with beef heart for fish), I find myself having to make my own food for my fish.

For all that is tetras and guppy I feed with flakes so no worries. But for catfish it's more complicated. I used to give them frozen food (daphnia, mysis, bloodworms, oxheart) but as it is more and more difficult to find I would like to make my own food in order to avoid any worries in waiting for the Repashy to be back.

I diversify as much as I can with pellets from different brands but that does not replace the "fresh" food I used to give them.

Do you have any recipes to share?

The main ones concerned are:
Hemiancistrus subvirridis
Synodontis nigriventris
Hypancistrus delibittera L129
Corydoras (aeneus, sterbai, paleatus, leucomelas, reticulatus)

In non-catfish:
Pangio kuhli
Pangio oblonga

I already have this recipe that they like but I would like to vary as much as possible:
-a gutted trout (about 250g)
-2g of agar-agar
-a tablespoon of vitamin supplement

This recipe does not look very balanced so I do not give it all the time.

How do you build your recipes?

VoIP virtual phone number
A man was going to the house of some rich person. As he went along the road, he saw a box of good apples at the side of the road. He said, "I do not want to eat those apples; for the rich man will give me much food; he will give me very nice food to eat." Then he took the apples and threw them away into the dust.
He went on and came to a river. The river had become very big; so he could not go over it. He waited for some time; then he said, "I cannot go to the rich man's house today, for I cannot get over the river."
He began to go home. He had eaten no food that day. He began to want food. He came to the apples, and he was glad to take them out of the dust and eat them.

I like to use panko bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. Lightly bread them and then fry in butter. Have lemon quarters available too :d
