    Puffer, Trigger etc food

    I currently feed Sally's Frozen Krill to our FOWLR tank. We have mixed in some of my home made fish food as well, but the Porcupines wont eat anything but the krill. Anyway, I am kind of tired of spending $13 every two weeks for frozen little shrimp. Any issues with feeding frozen salad shrimp instead? Both are cooked. Salad shrimp are shell less which would keep trash out of the tank as the puffers spit them out anyway. I also thought about getting small raw shrimp and cutting them in half, and then adding vita chem to them. I think that would actually be healthier than the krill. I am just looking for some input on this as I know we aren't the pinnacle of FOWLR knowledge.

    I am trying to stay away from canned stuff because I want to keep everything as fresh as possible.

    I have done some of the muscles, clams, and shrimp form the grocery store. I find it's easier to mash it into a ball and freeze it. Then i just cheese grate the ball over the tank. Works well. As far as the shrimp goes make sure to smell it before you buy! I know it sounds weird, but some places will slightly bleach the raw shrimp to keep it a bit longer. It isn't a ton, but you can smell it if it's been done. I also rinse it well in salt water to get anything off of it from the shipping and handling procedures. Good luck.

    I bought some of the seafood gumbo stuff before and just tossed the fake crab. Do I need to do that?
