  1. Default New Era brand fish food.


    0 Not allowed!
    Over the last few years I have tried various types and brands of food, I have settled on mostly using Nutrafin Max products despite the extra cost.

    Being back at uni and buying my books i can't afford my regular brand and went down to the LFS today they had a new brand called New Era and it came in a number of flakes, pellets granules etc. I bought a smaller container and thought I would give it a go, I needed food for my new albino cories, and wow I wanna know whats in this food, apart from feeding live blackworms i have never seen any of my fish eat so vigorously, Usually my cories continue with their day when I feed and just 'stumble' across the food. But with this stuff in a 5x2 footprint tank they actively hunted the pellets and chased the rummy nose away. The guy at the store gave me some pleco logs from the same brand so i gave those a go and the male bristlenose is protecting it like he is guarding eggs. Has anyone used this brand before and got similar reactions out of their fish?
    6ft Australian Fresh water turtle tank - 2 macleay river turtles, numerous guppy at varying stages of development.

    5ft 150gal planted discus tank - 8 discus, 10 cardinal tetras, 10 rummnose, 6 albino cories, and breeding RCS in tank sump and just about everywhere everything done from scratch, filtration and stand tank

    I have tried there marine pellets a few times and found them to be accepted well by my marine fish. Seams to be a OK food. I never got the reaction as you did.

    Good to hear your fish love it
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    This food looks pretty good and doesn't have ethoxyquin like so many of the recommended brands. I would like to try feeding this food to my fish, gotta get them to start selling here. Here is some information about it. http://www.new-era-aquaculture.com/fish-food

    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Thanks to wacck.!
    Excellent post about pet fish products, helpful site. The pet becomes a member in our life and we want to give them everything they need to live a healthy and happy life. It is the best place for online discussion where we can discuss about pet products, pet foods and more.

    hmmm...I hope the composition list on the container is a bit more enlightening than this:

    Composition

    Fish and Fish Derivatives, Derivatives of Vegetable Origin, Oils and Fats, Algae, Minerals, Molluscs and Crustaceans.
    When in doubt, do a water change.
