Ghetto Live Food Feeder

Straight off the back of the Ghetto Nori Feeder comes another equally terrible looking, but somewhat functional item!

I purchased a bag of Live Bloodworms as a treat for my fish, and completely forgot that i had lost my floating feeder cone months ago, and i didnt fancy just dumping the bag load into the tank.

So thinking quickly, i found a used drinks bottle…

Drilled and deburred a series of holes in and around the bottom…

The intention is to just wedge it into the hole for the Juwel auto feeder…

One bag of live worms, seriously for 40p you cant go wrong and the fish go insane for them!

Don’t want that red water, or whatever it is, in the aquarium though, so strain them through a net or something similar. In hindsight the net was a bit big, bulky, some of the worms got caught and the rough edges on the Ghetto Feeder caught the mesh as i tried to put them in initially. Will devise something better next time.

There were enough holes, perhaps a few too many as the fish made very little work of their supplied treat, pulling any foolish ones to their peril if they looked out!

It looks as rough as hell, but worked great and all the fish got a great snack, fat bellies and looked very happy for themselves as a result!

Here is a quick video…
