From what I can make out (the non blurry parts, I can kind of guess what the blurry parts say, but...)

Filled with many of the nutrients that shrimp require, you can expect them to grow (well, etc. can't really make out this part).

The front does not say anything about what is inside.

I wanna say my scape baby food is the same thing or close as frank of ebiken designed it. My package says.

"A high-protein powder containing the necessary nutrients and amino acids to promote higher growth and survival rates of young shrimp."



Mine also smells sweet like chocolate, protein powder and fish cake.

Well, I think bebi and Ei are fundamentally different. Bebi is mainly yeast and rice bran, whereas Ei is purely bacteria. They accomplish similar things, which is becoming a food for baby shrimp, but I've never seen shrimp quite go nuts for Bebi as they do for Ei, and I've used and sold both in the past. Ei is pretty unique, shrimp seem to smell it right away and attack. The babies grow up pretty quickly on it too.

It's also something that my cardinals will eat, and they wont touch anything else (aka, spinach, other prepared foods, fish flakes, etc.)

I appreciate the feedback on products like this. I ordered a package of the Ei from mordalphus based on the comments here. Guess my shrimp are like everyone else's as mine were dancing around and really active after I put the powder in. Look forward to seeing how the baby shrimp do with it.

Well, I received a second batch of the EI today and it looks like they started doing different packaging. Comes in a plastic tube instead of the bag like in the past. Works the same...shrimp go nuts.

When feeding baby foods, do any of you turn off the filter for awhile or doesn't matter if some gets sucked up? Haha

I actually do turn off the filter for about 30 minutes which also gives the shrimp an opportunity to swim around when they go nuts.

I leave my filters on since my babies like to stay on the filters. It does clog the sponges faster (I have sponges on all my filters, canisters and HOBS) but it lets the adults do their thing in the tank and on the substrate and the babies just wait it out on the filters

I use a number of powdered foods for baby shrimp. They really seem to like powdered spirulina and powdered rotifers
