  • Homemade Reef Food Recipe

    CORA VP, Brad (Mantis) Blankenship did a demo/presentation at the March 2006 meeting to show how he makes his own food for the reef animals in his care. Basically, you put all this in a blender and chop it into a paste. Then pour it into ziplock bags and freeze it to about 1/4" thick so you can easily break chunks off to feed your reef.
