Fish goo, LRS frozen, random other frozen (mysis, cyclops, marine mixes of some kind), various flakes, occasionally NLS pellets.

And also nori but I've been lazy about that recently.

Each week I put some RODI in a small tupperware container and mix up the following (the cubes are chopped up a bit to aid with defrosting as I'm usually feeding a short time later):

- freeze-dried cyclops (couple small scoops)
- APBreed TDO Chroma Boost (small pellets) [came with the tank setup]
- Hikari Seaweed Extreme (sinking pellets)
- freeze-dried blood worms
- New Life Spectrum Thera+A pellets
- Sally's Frozen Brine Shrimp (break off a piece about the size of a cube)
- PE Calanus (Copepod zooplankton)
- Frozen Mysis Shrimp
- Frozen Fish eggs
- Frozen Bloodworms

Every couple days I throw 1"x2" pieces of the following Nori on a clip:

- Julian Sprung's Sea Veggies - Purple Seaweed
- Julian Sprung's Sea Veggies - Green Seaweed (also have Petco green, forget what brand)
- Petco Red Seaweed (forget what brand, same as the Petco green)

I bought the silicone trays below as I plan to mix up some "fish goo" and freeze it into my own cubes. Then I can toss a cube or two into my Frag Freaks tumbler that should be here sometime this week.

I recently put everything I had in a blender and mixed it together. I think next time Ill need to get some of those silicon trays though. Breaking pieces off from a frozen flat sheet is annoying.

I got to get those trays as I want to start doing my own fish & coral food.

I take a cooked frozen shrimp (like the ones for shrimp cocktail) a small rock and rubberband. Tie the shrimp to the rock and drop it in . The crabs go nuts . It's also fun to watch!
 

this is me

I like turtles
On a more serious note, I’ve been using quahog clams as the main food source. Flakes and pellets on the occasion to keep the Anthias healthy.
It’s a lot of work to shuck these clams.
