A "Game Changer" for feeding fry!

As you know, we come from a reef aquarium background. As such, we're always interested in foods that can benefit corals. One of the most important factors in feeding corals is getting the particle size right, so that the food is accepted by the animals. 

When we were introduced to Doc's Eco Egg Brew, we used it as a coral food at Unique Corals, where it was consumed readily by a wide variety of corals, including the rather finicky "SPS" varieties (Acropora, Montipora, etc.), which need small-sized foods.


After much consultation with the folks at Doctor Eco Systems, manufacturers of Doc's Eco Super Eggs, they encouraged us to use the "Brew" as a supplemental fry food. We realized the potential for what this food is, and for how it can change the way we feed fish fry in the freshwater hobby.

We immediately got it into the hands of an avid fish-breeding friend, (Who, as luck would have it, was raising a few batches of killies, Gouramis, and a very young clutch of Apistogramma at the time). She was blown away by the acceptability of this food! In fact, I got an earful about how I should have been telling her about it sooner...LOL) Because it's a blended version of the Eco Eggs, it has a particle size between 1-400 microns- which puts it in the range of acceptability for pretty much any fish fry we work with in the freshwater world! 

And when you consider the amazing nutritional properties of this food (24.5% protein, 2.54% fat, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids) and it's purity (no arsenic, copper, or other heavy metals), you've got what amounts to a real "game-changer" for feeding freshwater fish fry. 

It's easy to feed, and super concentrated (that translates into "economical" in fish-geek speak!), so you've got a winning combo here, and a great alternative food to the traditional ones we use to rear fry, like brine shrimp, microworms, etc.

All in all, we're as excited as can be for this cool new form factor for feeding our fry, and we think you will be, too!

Keep those fry well fed...

And stay wet!
