Robs reef food


Picked up some frozen robs reef food for my picotope. The lady said I could use it on FW too. Should I try it out? Wonder if my fish would be happy with it.

Lucky. I wish i had a local place to pick up some of this. It seems like a great food. Alot of the ingredients are the same type of things that are in pelletized and flake food, this is just fresh. Not sure what you have for fish, but i would just about guarantee that they will love this! Just experiment, feed a little, and see what they think. But you dont have to worry that it will harm anything...

FW I have rummy nose,neons,glowlights and pepper cory cats. It's kind of expensive but she said it will last a long time.

Haha, cool, I knew they would. I am curious, how small were the particles of food in it? You have some pretty small mouthed fish, were they able to eat everything?

A lot of sw foods are good fw foods. Cyclopeeze is a good alternative to daphnia and bbs. Powdered coral foods are good options for fry.

The biggest piece that I saw fall off was maybe the size of a little shrimp maybe smaller. They were fighting over this stuff.

I'm pretty sure my fish had more color to them today. I wonder if it was this food.

I would have to assume this is placebo effect...you're expecting good things from this. Maybe not though? Just have never heard of food acting that quickly. But either way, sounds like it was a hit. Makes me want to renew my search.
