Goldfish feeding

Who all on here has goldfish?
We plan to use goldfish for our aquaponic set up. They are inexpensive, available year round and great plant food producers.
Thing is, all the fish food has some kind of preservative in it or other items we try to avoid. I've been reading on making goldfish food gel, and it looks easy enough.
Has anyone on here done this?
Do you add spirulina? Seaweeds? Probiotics?
Lots of the recipes suggest adding crushed up vitamin pills, but I'd rather try to feed enough variety and healthy food to avoid this.
If anyone has experience and suggestions, please, do tell....

Re: Goldfish feeding

I used to feed mine bloodworms, you can buy them frozen and the larvae of Mosquitos (in season) and there is a certain aquarium plant they like to eat but I can't remember what it is called.

Re: Goldfish feeding

Thanks Thor. I do plan to capture lots of mossies larvae this year and freeze them. We have a few around here -lol
Did you just feed blood worms as a treat?
I've been reading gel food recipes, and they look pretty easy...
