Fish Food in a pepper grinder! A tip to feed larger foods to small fish.

I recently purchased a pepper mill to see if it could grind down food for small fish or fry. It worked great.  I have been using nano and both 1.5 xtremes along with several other foods. I bought sera discus granules by the pound and made a video showing the pepper mill in use.  Can come in handy if you like to buy food in larger quantities and want more options for what size it can be fed to.

What type of food are you crushing? I like the pepper mill because I can adjust the size of the grind. With the sera discus granules which are pretty similar to tetra tropical granules in size and shape I try to grind down just enough to be eaten while remaining slow sinking. I think with any food if you grind it or crush it too fine it will just cloud the tank.

These all seem like good options. Can just buy xtreme big fellas for my cichlids then grind down for my tetra then again for babies and then fry mix. I like it a lot! Would save $

this forum is amazing, new ideas I would never think of daily!

Just got to check the ingredients/nutritional facts to see how close the food you want to grind down is to proven fry starter or nano etc
