I am in need of a small container to keep my frozen rods reef food in that is FREEZER safe and wont make the food get freezer burn, which is what I have now.

What kind of tupperware containers are freezer burn safe out there?

Just double bag it in some zip-lock freezer bags...you could also suck the air out, that could help some.

I've just been using the bag it comes in, but mine is getting pretty iced up.

I keep my partial Mysis cubes in one of the small round Ziploc containers and it seems to work out alright.

ziplocks are a pain and never seem to keep them freezer safe.

and im not sucking any air out of a rods reef bag blah.

I would like something quick and easy to just open and pop the top off so I dont have to worry about fish food getting smashed in the zipper over time and making a mess, making my hands smell etc etc.

Well freezer burn only effects taste from what I have read, im sure your fish do not care.

Anyways, you could try some kind of jar that has a rubber gasket and metal clip that seals it shut, similar to the things people keep flour, rice, etc in.

I double up zip lock bags to help prevent freezer burn. also wrap the bags with a newspaper or paper towel.
