View Full Version : For those who feed Krill

do you thaw them out, seperate the shrimp individually and then refreeze it inside a tupperware or how do you feed the krill? I have it in the manufactured frozen block right now and was just curious, I feed mysis also but krill is definately much larger.

What I do with things like that are cut away the package and then put the block in a freezer bag (gallon size). Use a knife/fork/jackhammer to break a small piece off. Put some water from your tank (NOT YOUR SINK) and then put the piece of krill in the water to let it thaw out. Once thaw and NOT cold toss it into tank.

I break a piece off of the block when needed and rinse and thaw in tank water then feed. I do not thaw and refreeze because of the possibility of bacteria(decay) problems

I break a few pieces off into a plastic cup, add some tank water, let it melt, and when it's fully thawed, hand feed some corals with it, and I suppose you could feed fish with it. Also my shrimp love it. I always keep the main block frozen.

Same as ReefWreak, except I hand feed an anemone. :)
