Mussel storing/preperation

Post by Bulletfishy » Sun Sep 23, 2018 7:47 am

Hey guys,
Not sure if its in the right topic but i cant find it anywhere.

I bought a 2kg package of mussels in shell at the store. Now what is the best way to keep them oke for the puffer?

Do you boil them all first and then freeze it and take one out when you need one or do you just freeze the package as is and take one out?

Do NOT cook! Keep them in the freezer & defrost in room temp vitamin water. I like Vita-Chem,

Question!^^

That HS Aqua Vivocell vitamin stuff has a guide on the back. 1ml of it per teaspoon of food. But how do you measure this for mussels or clams etc? Maybe stupid question but Im really scratching my head and i dont want to add too much..would be a waste.

1ml should be fine for a soak.
