  4. Hi. I am wondering if anyone is familiar with Boss Aquaria's Boss Booster shrimp food? I have only recently come across it and am curious on something. The packaging doesn't list the full ingredients, mentioning only Beta-G, colostrum and yeast. There is a very noticible garlicish flavor burst additionly. What has me particularly curious is the feeding directions. Rather than a typical, as much as is consumed in several minutes type instruction, the directions read: 1 spoon per 100L, 1-2 times a week. The spoon is included. These directions to me read more like dosing directions than feeding directions. Given the strong aroma of garlic and more, could there be toxicity exceeding stated levels? The actual spoon is microscopicly small leader me to wonder on overdosing smaller shrimp tanks.
  5. Any one heard of this fish food ?
  6. ...We now have available our new Shrimp Block and Shrimp food. We put Graham to task in developing a couple of new product for us. Firstly a Shrimp Block - we wanted a block that lasted (approx 3 months), that helped with water properties, containing Montmorillonite, helped with colour, had a food source as well as a carbon source and this is what he was able to come up with for us... Ornamental Shrimp Mineral Block - and it is just $19.95 less your discount. Here is the link for it ----> Ornamental Shrimp Mineral Block Cointains Montmorillonite The innovative block adds essential minerals required to maintain the healthy existence of ornamental freshwater shrimp. It does this by automatically dissolving based on the existing water hardness The Block will increase permanent hardness while not effecting carbonate hardness, it does however contain a liquid form of Carbon that is essentialfor all life incliding good bacteria. The liquid carbon also doubles as a very effective plant fertiliser and Ammonia Converter. Although it is recognised by the manufacturer that shrimp are normally kept in RO or Rain Water the inclined carbon acts on lime in town water to convert it into Calcium Carbonate check can then be consumed by the aquarium environment, making it possible to maintain good crustacean health The block also incorporates Astaxanthin impregnated food to encourage shrimp to consume the Montmorillonite in the Block. Shrimp often come into contact in the wild with more soluble form of this kind of clay. This process is designed to simulate this action. Included food is stabilised by the Liquid Carbon and the segment can be used as a weekend or weekly holiday feeder. Block Contains: Calcium Montmorillonite, Calcium Sulphate, C5H8O2 as Liquid Carbon, Magnesium Sulphate, Potassium Sulphate, Iron Sulphate Chelated, Magnesium Sulphate, Astaxanthin. Dose: One Block per 50l Water First Block will last approx 1 Week Once the water levels content are levelled after the first block additional blocks will last approx 2-3 weeks *************************************************************************************************** The next one is Shrimp food that also helped with colour - $16.50 Less your discount :- Ornamental Shrimp Colour Enhancing Pellet Food 35g Here is the link for it -----> Ornamental Shrimp Pellet Food 35g Manufactured from the highest quality fish meal and vegetable products.

  15. I've recently picked up a bunch of Peacock Bass which are roughly at the 5 cm mark. I've been feeding them bloodworm and some small cichlid pellets which I had sitting around although they won't eat the pellet. I did a little research into which pellet would suit them better but I still wouldn't mind some advice from some people who keep them. Cheers

  23. Hey all, I recently bought a 3kg tub of Aquamunch fish food and I've only opened it once or twice which was to transfer a smaller amount into a small container, which is what I use daily to feed my fish. However the other day I opened it and found this I'm guessing it's some kind of mould, but i've barely had it opened so its just weird. Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks Mary-Anne
