By the way, I probably have enough food for about 3 decades if you factor in all the shirakura, BW and various other ones.

Did you pay straight through the site or did you need to email them first since you are located in the States?

Hey, the bag in the third picture that says microfood translates into: comprehensive food for dwarf shrimp and micro fish; it also states that is is used as growth food for larvae and young animals

Nice, thanks. I pretty much just added it to my cart.

Here is a description from the site:

Prawns are constantly searching for food and collect from their entire environment. They feed it from the smallest micro particles. Therefore it is important to offer the animals a pellet which they can find and consume in their search. NATURE FOOD GO MICRO-can also be used as a complete replacement for plankton and Artemia diet. Well as raising food for young shrimp, it is ideal. GO MICRO FOOD NATURE offer your animals a diet in the wild. This food has an optimal ratio of omega-and is highly digestible for your pet. It contains all the necessary building blocks for the Eiversorgung and the rearing of young animals. The raw materials can be fully implemented by the animals and are thus 100% available. This is taken care of for a more junior and prevents premature death shortly after hatching. By feeding granules to avoid stress and give your pets what they need. Fütterempfehlung: 1-2 times daily amounts offered to be consumed within one hour. Residual vacuum chuck. Sinkfähiges, water-resistant granules. Guaranteed not to attractants, preservatives and flavor enhancers.

ingredients: Fish meal, wheat gluten, fish oil, vitamins, Mineralpremixe, betaine.

I had no idea that they shipped to the USA but I just winged it and paid via PayPal. To be honest, I totally forgot about this until I saw the package sitting on my porch.

Make sure to the the Omnia Pro....that was the sole reason for my order.

I'm too lazy to look it up right now. Is Astaxantine what makes yellow neos turn a different color?

I think it's Spirulina that affects the yellows (turns them blueish green) but I'm not going to swear to it.

Ordered that, the 15+1 sample pack and some Hokkaido pumpkin chips to try before I start growing my own pumpkins next year

So glad you brought this up Hedge cause I had looked at the site, bookmarked it and then got sidetracked and forgot about it. Like you I have enough food to last decades...that's why I have so many RAOKs though, I'll never be able to go through everything I have unless breeding goes nuts in my tanks...and even then I probably wouldn't be able to go through it all!
