Okay, we are getting pretty spoiled around here- finding some real gems to bring to you- and we figured that we'd just keep going!
Today, we're excited to offer a great new food that will greatly enhance the way you feed- and offer your fishes superior nutrition in an easy-to-use format- "Doc's Eco Super Eggs" from Doctor Eco-Systems!
I first stumbled on this food at one of the many conferences I attend, and was immediately hooked, to use a pun. I had heard fellow marine aquarists raving about this product, but never really investigated it. When I launched Tannin, I realized that it could be a perfect food for freshwater fishes. (This product was originally marketed for marine fishes, but is eagerly accepted by every freshwater fish we've tested it on!)
The owner of Doctor Eco Systems, Dr. Hersh, and his team, Matt and Kristen, were super excited, diligent, and answered all of my many questions about their products...and I knew then that I'd have to bring this food to you!
Obviously, as a reef keeper who's seen and heard his share of hype and false promises about products, I was a bit skeptical about anything that seemed to good to be true...and was very pleasantly surprised to find out that the product more than lives up to the good reputation it's developed in the marine aquarium sector! And of course, although it's great that marine fish tear the stuff up, it's very important to make sure that freshwater fishes accept this food eagerly- which they do! It's been tested on freshwater fishes for over a year, with amazing results.
Doc's Eco Super Eggs consists of a 1 to 2 mm diameter freshwater fish egg with a very high concentration of protein, fat, and Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids which makes it a great option for conditioning newly arrived aquarium fish or conditioning fishes to spawn. The product has undergone very extensive testing from Midwest Laboratories, Inc. for detailed nutritional analysis and purity. These guys are very serious about providing an amazingly high-quality food source.
Doc's Eco Super Eggs comes in a nutritive brine, and does not need to be refrigerated until it is opened. Upon dispensing it into water, it disperses into lots of individual, bite-sized eggs that drive the fish freakin' crazy! Like, I wouldn't want to be in the water with my Cardinal Tetras during feeding of this stuff!
It's recommended to drop it into a container of tank water first, to get it to separate a bit. Of course, you can just dispense it into the tank if you prefer, but we're pretty confident that you'll want to "pre-disperse" it first, to see that everyone gets their fair share!
If you're trying to acclimate newly-arrived fishes, or preparing them for spawning- particularly fishes like cichlids, Tetras, Killies, etc.- you'll find that this highly nutritious food is going to be an essential part of your conditioning program. The longer-term users of this food that I've spoken to who breed fishes have told me that they feel they're getting larger and more healthy spawns from their fishes- particularly the cichlid crowd- since utilizing this food as part of their pre-and post-spawn conditioning. Of course, as more freshwater hobbyists use this food, we'll undoubtedly hear more cool success stories!
We're pretty certain that you'll love this food almost as much as your fishes will!
Let's hear your feedback!
Stay Wet...and full!
