I have been doing a lot of reading lately on feeding regimens and realize that I don't really have one for my daughters 30 gallon community tank. Typically we have been feeding a mix of Fluvals Bug Bites Tropical Formula Flakes, Omega Ones Frozen Brine Shrimp and Frozen Daphnia and San Francisco Emerald Entrée. I don't really have a rhyme or reason to what I feed and when I feed it. We currently have one Molli, one diamond tetra and 10-12 emerald tetras, we are planning on adding another couple of Mollis and a couple more diamonds in the next month or two as well to fish out the stocking. They all seem to be doing really well other than loosing a few of the emeralds I am guessing due to over feeding, but I want to make sure that I am giving them a good balanced diet and enough variety to keep them happy. I do plan on going to a better flake once what we have is gone. Any suggestions on a feeding plan?
Also over the next couple of years my job is going to keep me away from home a decent amount and I would like to make it easy on my wife and daughter when it comes to feeding. I was thinking about trying to make up a bunch of frozen cubes with a good mix of food that they can grab and drop into the tank on feeding days so they don't have to think about what to feed and when. Would it be wise or even worth my time to take a bunch of frozen daphnia, bs, some sort of veggie mix, thaw them and mix them all together with some high quality flake food or other powder additives (like the stuff you can get from Kens) and divide it all out into some sort of ice cube try or candy tray and freeze it so that all they have to do is drop a piece or two into the tank and have everything taken care of in one shot?
