A recipe for the carnivorous fish.

*2 oz Meal worms
*2 tsp spurlina powder
*10-15 drops of liquid vitamins
Directions
1) Place all contents into blender.

2) Place in ziplock bag.

3) Freeze the ziplock bag and contents.

When frozen break into small pieces and feed.

This recipe is very nutritional!

while true that you should not feed "some" africans high protein diets,
that is not true of all,

this statement above holds true for, the pseudotropheous genus of lake malawi and for the tropheus genus of lake Tanganyika.


most of the other fishes of the lakes will do well with beefheart mixture, my fronts, and furcifers thrive on my homemade mixture...

Might be hard finding a ziplock that will fit a blender
