It is a dry, floating powder made by OSI. Mostly an egg and fish protein
substance it is excellent for very tiny babies that will surface feed.
APR is an acronym for Artificial Plankton Rotifer.
I love it for Lampeyes and Medakas. Get a local club to buy a can and divide
it. It's sold mostly to the aquaculture trade, and hard to find in less than
1/2 lb cans. That is more than a hobby fishroom can use in a century!
Barring that, you can try drying some hard-boiled egg yolk and pulverising
For babies that don't surface feed, I have used a tiny bit of hard-boiled
yolk just as is, by muddling a rice-grain size piece in a spoonful of water.
Feed cautiously as it is rich. Be *sure* to have cleanup snails or shrimp.
It clouds the water and stays in suspension fairly well. The snails get what
settles out before it spoils and fouls the water.
