    If you haven't seen these frozen foods called cyclop-eeze you need to check them out.

    these are by far the favorite thing for my fish to eat, they are like little red amphipods and copepods. If a fish turns down these there is a good chance they just plain won't eat frozen or dry foods at all.

    even the larger polyp sps will eat them, my tenuis catches them pretty easily.

    I never knew how many people didn't know about these things until recently, so I decided to do this post.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I love the product, just wish it came in smaller packaging. My fish loved it as well as the LPS. The package was too big though, or my tank is too small.:)

    Oh and great thing to feed young clowns fish.

    only one lfs in my area carries them continually. I talked to a person at another lfs and they said that only one place distributes the frozen ones. So I guess alot of lfs don't like to do a special order for one product.

    yea the 2 ounce bar lasts forever, They are almost pure copepods with no frozen water. fosters and smiths sells a 25 ounce block, I wonder how many people can actually go through that.

    With finicky wrasses. They will love this. Its how I got my Leopard onto flake food. I would mix this in with some smaller flakes and bam :) Works like a charm.

    For those of you that Have Sun corals. They will open up in mid daylight once this stuff hits the tank.

    I dont have any. the dummy LFS owner in my town doesnt carry it.

    that said, if you ever need to fatten up a fish, that stuff is DA BOMB DIGGITY!!!! Very very good stuff. I have never seen a fish refuse it, and all of your corals will gobble it up.

    I could go thru a 25 oz bar.. may take me a year or two...next time I make up some homemade frozen, I will have this mixed in as well. VERY VERY good stuff.
