Ok, compared to what people are going through, this may seem trivial.
At the risk of sounding silly
does anyone know of a gluten free fish food I can use to feed my beloved pets?

This is my first OMGFREAKOUT surprise in my gluten-free journey.
My aquariums and their inhabitants have been my obsession and first love for decades.
I just looked at the fish food and not only does it have a bunch of bad grains in it, but it actually lists 'WHEAT GLUTEN' as like the fourth ingredient!
For now I am going to use gloves to handle it (no I don't eat it, luckily) but I'll need an alternative. I imagine that all that gluten is just floating around in the water, so when I'm up to my shoulders in it cleaning I'm not doing myself any good at all.

Suggestions? Sorry if this sounds stupid!

I dont consider any concern "trivial" when it comes to keeping yourself healthy. I could not find any commercially available fish food that is wheat free. And several forums I found included many frustrated fish owners. But I found this:

You freeze it. Sounded pretty easy to make to me. And probably a TON healthier for your little guys than commercial stuff. :)

henny ..I have 2 tanks running right now and I'm worried about the same thing. One of the people (Ed) on my tropical fish boards makes fish food, alot of the members say their fish LOVE it. I haven't ordered it yet..its next on the list.


http://www.almostnat...ngredients.html

He hates wheat gluten, not good for fish. This is on his site

The proteins in "Almost Natural Tropical Fish Food" are all naturally whole proteins, and very good proteins at that, and come directly from the ingredients. However, in other fish foods that are on the market, anybody can add a bunch of wheat gluten, for instance, among other things, to increase crude protein levels very easily. Notice that you did NOT see wheat gluten, which is not even a whole protein, nor any other type of protein boosters in my tropical fish food.

thank you everyone!

I have made frozen food in the past for my larger fish, and may have to start that up again. The link provided is AWESOME and I'll definitely try that also. Me and my fish are very grateful!

Just an FYI - the last post on here was from 2008.

Obviously, this fish food isn't gluten free as it contains " wheat flower". I'm assuming a typo for flour.
