I also store my bulk fish food in the freezer with good results.

Juli, rather than using the 7 day pill minder for your fish food, you can get an empty shaker type spice jar at most department stores. They usually have a perforated plastic lid and you can use a piece of clear tape to plug off the holes so it only dispenses the amount you need per feeding.

I also use empty vitamin bottles that have a flip open lid and just cut a small circle of fiberglass window screen and insert it inside the lid. The small .5mm NLS food that I use dispenses easily through the holes in the correct amount.

The most important things to remember about fish food is to keep it dry and away from heat and light.
