2 Whole Beef Hearts - Trimmed
1 .87 oz can of Tetra Krill-E
1 7/8 oz can of Wardley Spectra IV
1 .88 oz can of Wardley Spirulina Plus
1 tsb Paprika
1 14 oz can of Spinach drained (reserve liquid)
1 1/4 deheaded shrimp (table shrimp, the kind you eat)
2 cloves of Garlic
2 droppersful of liquid Poly-Vi-Sol Vitamins for children
3 pkgs of Knox Unflavored Gelatin
Remove fat and sinew from beef heart. Deshell shrimp. Run the beef heart and shrimp through a meat grinder. I alternate a piece of beef heart and then a few shrimp. I then process the krill, spectra, spirulina, and paprika in a food processor till it becomes a powder. Set this mixture aside. Put the drained spinach (reserve the liquid), garlic, and vitamins in the food processor till you have a liquid mixture. Mix together the meat, dry, and liquid mixtures. Put the reserved spinach liquid and enough water to equal 1 cup in a sauce pan. Sprinkle gelatin on top of liquid and let it set for one minute. Heat gelatin till dissolved, do not boil, stirring constantly . Add to beef heart mixture, stir well. I spread the mixture on a cookie sheet even with the top lip and let it cool. Put it in the freezer till frozen. Then process it through a salad shooter and refreeze.
My discus are very docile. From the first time I fed this mixture, the fish became very aggressive while feeding. I can't tell you how much they like it.
