I'd like to know more about this food, its composition, comparative
nutritional value vs. BBS, and its suitability as a substitute. With the
prices of BBS eggs dropping, is this still a viable alternative? What about
its comparative acceptance?
Regarding Mike Reed's foods, I have only tried the flakes and granules, not
the frozen foods, and find them similar to other flake foods in acceptance.
They seem to have the same ingredients, but Reed promotes his use of egg
yolk, so maybe there is more yolk than in other flakes.
Egg yolk was the secret method of Jack Wattley for raising discus away from
the parents, and he gets the credit in this hobby. I recently learned,
however, that egg yolk had previously been used to raise dart (poison arrow)
frog tadpoles at the same time that Wattley was also keeping those frogs. So
maybe his application to discus was original, but not his application to
feeding aquatic animals. I should discuss this with him.
