"my tetra menu"

I Use a variety of tetra products these days in my tanks to target feed several of my inhbitants.

Firstly i Use Tetrafauna Reptomin, a food thats targeted at reptiles specifically, this is not the reason i use it though.

Reptomin is rich in calcium to aid in a healthy shell growth, i grind up this product for my Snails and Shrimp. The Apple snails often feed at the waters surface and make a cone with their foot to catch their food. My bamboo shrimp use their fans to catch food in teh water column, so this product is perfect once ground up to ensure that my guys are getting the calcium suppliment they need.

My fish go nuts for this stuff to.
Its a diverse food containing vegetable derivatives, fish and fish derivatives, vegetable protein extracts, yeasts, minerals, molluscs, crustaceans, oils, fats, and algae

Typical analysis:

protein oil fibre ash moisture calcium
39% 4.5% 2% 15% 9% 3.3%

also contains vitamins A, D3,E.

I paid £2.99 for a 22g pot that has lasted me so far about 4 months

feed sparingly so as not to pollute the water.

Tetra treats tablet food

I can't for the life of me get these to stick to the glass, but these seem to be a firm favorite with my Sulawesi snails, i do feed these as stated on the pack though as a treat.

They seem to disolve pretty quickly, which is all good when i have fry in the tank, they go nuts around it, easy pickings i guess.

At £4.14 for 25g its hardly inexpensive food, so i was rather disapointed that every time i tried to stick them to the glass they just broke in half.

contains: milk and milk derivatives, molluscs and crustaceans (daphnia 15% brine shrimp FD 7% gammarus 4.5% in proportion) vegetable protein extracts, fish and fish derivatives, yeast, cereals, insects (red mosquito lavaeFDF 2.5%) algae, oils, fats, egg and egg derivatives, vegetable derivatives, various sugars, lecithin

typical analysis:

protein oil fibre ash moisture
43% 3% 2% 11% 9%

contains vitamins A, D3, E

Feed these products as part of a well varied diet, and you will have some very happy little aquatic people :D
