    Would love to hear your thoughts on my below proposed recipe before I try it:
    • Chopped up prawns (or brine shrimp)
    • Peas
    • Spirulina powder (or Spinach)
    • Seaweed
    • Garlic
    • Unflavored Gelatin Powder (to help the food hold together)
    I'm not sure about the exact proportion of these. Any successful recipes to share?

    Cheers

    You might consider agar agar or locust bean gum as a binder, rather than the gelatin. The latter is hard to find, but agar agar is easy. I think it holds up better than gelatin at room or tank temperature.

    Bob Bock has a recipe online: http://www.sonnysfishroom.com/?page_id=269
