White fish with salsa: black cod with tropical fruit

I’ve been making a lot of tropical fruit salsa lately. You could say I am on a tropical fruit salsa kick. Fruits and veggies mixed with the lime juice and spices are so good, and there are so many possible variations – I can eat it with anything! The salsa goes especially well with seafood: I’ve made mango salsa with salmon, pineapple salsa with shrimp, and now it’s time for white fish with salsa.

In this recipe, I am entering a new fruit – cantaloupe! Who knew that cantaloupe could be a delicious addition to tropical fruit salsa! It’s sweet, it’s soft, it’s colorful! It balances perfectly with the rest of ingredients: tomatoes, pineapple, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and spices.

On these photos you see fresh black cod right from the Seattle seafood market, but, really, any white fish can be used: tilapia, halibut, mahi mahi, sea bass.White fish with salsa (black cod with tropical fruit), seafood, halibut, mahi mahi, black cod, tilapia, sea bassh il content, therefore, it’s almost impossible to have a dry black cod. If you get your hands on good quality black cod – by all means buy it! If you tend to overcook your fish and then don’t like the resulting dry taste – try this fish, because it’s virtually impossible to fail with black cod and overcook it.

I just love this recipe! Eating white, flaky fish with all that fruit and vegetables is very refreshing! I feel like I am in Hawaii!

I feed a variaty of food

by LadyGamer

When I go on vacation I toss a fun mix of all sorts of foods. Bloodworms I hear are great for color. There's another type of small worm they dry in a cube my fish always love (don't remember the name off hand lol) You can get them dried or frozen. There is also a lot of good mixed flake foods out there. Tropical is the one you're looking for.
I also occasionally feed frozen food. I got a "Lunch Box" of all sorts of stuff to feed. I'll take a glass of tank water, dump some frozen stuff in to thaw, then toss it all in the tank. Fish go NUTZ over the stuff.
The brand of flake that I feed has a yellow bottle with a red top and a picture of colored flakes on the front in a circle

Sick betta

You're right, loss of color and lethargy are signs of illness. However, they can mean a lot of things.
First, I would take the advice of previous posters and buy some water conditioner that neutralizes chlorine and chloramines. Personally, I'm a fan of Prime (a small bottle will last you forever, since it's highly concentrated), but any conditioner should do.
Have you ever had your water tested? Most fish/pet stores will do this for free. You can also buy testing strips/kits so you can do it at home as often as you like. Testing your water will tell you levels of ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, pH, hardness, and alkalinity
