Gelatin Fish Food Recipe

My fish go crazy for this. It’s great because you can get them all the different types of food easily.


  • 1/4 cup ground fish food (whatever kinds you want: prepared, algae, peas, zucchini, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup hot water (Alternate: 1 jar of baby food, like peas and add water to make 1/2 a cup total.)
  • 1 packet of Knox gelatin


  • Grind up selected foods
  • Add 1 pack of gelatin to ground food
  • Microwave 1/2 cup of water/baby food until hot (1 minute in my microwave)
  • Mix the powdered food/gelatin mix to to the hot water.
  • Pour into container so it is about a 1/2 thick. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour stirring occasionally till it starts to set to avoid food from settling.
  • Cut into cubes. Keeps in refrigerator for 1-2 weeks, or you can freeze.

Here is youtube video of someone else making it.

    My fish will come up out of the water for this and grab it out of my hand. LOL!
