I take my spinach and put it on a cookie sheet to make sure the leaves are dry, then I freeze them and put them in a freezer bag and keep doing that till the bag of spinach is frozen. Then when it's feeding time, I take 3 leaves, 1 for each tank and put them in a cup of water in the microwave for about 3 mins until they are soft, then blast with cold water, then I squeeze them and let the tap water drip off them, then into the tank.
Everyone has their own way, but I find freezing them on a cookie sheet and making sure they are dry, they stay as frozen leaves and not a big frozen mess with ice all through it. It's hard to get 1 leaf out of a frozen ball of ice and leaves, but with each leaf frozen first, they stay apart and it's easy to get a single leaf or even half a leave if I want a small bit for my ottos or snails or something.
