Cyclop-eese, in my experience, works best in tanks with a good aeration -
this helps keeps the particles in motion as some of the product tends to
float. For fry boxes with no aeration, I do one of two things: pre-mix the
stuff with water or place it on the surface and use a baster to mix it in
with the water. If I have the time, using the baster gets me better
In conclusion, samples of the product were sent to the National Convention
so that AKA members in attendance could try a product that might be a good
partial substitute for brine shrimp eggs. If your fish take it and you like
it, then you can use it. If it does not work for you then maybe your
research will turn up another product that the membership could try.
