There was additional early German literature that
mentioned boiled yolk as a fry food.
In my opinion the FROZEN cyclop eeze is the best new food to come
along in many years, since it is frozen with almost no moisture,I have
never seen anything frozen with so little moisture, the price is very
reasonable and may be even cheaper than freeze dry is one did a comparison
The frozen stays suspended in water and floats around attracting
fish like a magnet. I am feeding it every day and have seen the growth of
fish increase, the colors seem brighter and there is seldom any left in
the tank. It is a staple in my fish room along with baby brine in two
sizes and the mainstay for raising fry. supplements of golden pearls,
artificial rotifers etc enhance the diet of my young fish. I am keeping
tetras, killies, small rainbows, signifer, werneri types along with dwarf
cichlids, every fish I have takes this food with a gusto.
