Astax

TA Blend No. 1
We wanted a granule for use in the fish shop & hatchery which could fulfill a wide range of fish from veggie Rift Lake Cichlids to Coldwater fish & South American catfish etc,
We are also using this on our Westie Cichlids as part of a varied diet.
After a lot of experimentation with 300+ tanks we came up with this blend which has been tested out for some time on a wide variety of fish with great results.
This is a blend of Astax, Spirulina, Garlic & Krill granules.
You really need to try this...

High Protein Granule
This is a high protein granule in similar sizes to our Astax range.
Grade 2 contains the same high protein content as our freeze dried Blackworm. Larger granules slightly less.
Used in our hatchery as a growth food especially grade 2 in combination with newly hatched Brine Shrimp.

Good for fish requiring high protein such as Discus, Cats, Angels/ Cichlids but not veggie Rift types.

This granule works.

The manufacturer has decided to delete this feed. It's one of the best foods & we feed it a lot to our fish.

These are 'Assassin' snails which predate on other snails. Even these suck up the red crumb.

Poecilocharax weitzmanni. We imported the fish in these photos from Colombia. They always come in really small (about 5-10mm) & are notoriously difficult to quarantine & raise. This is why they are rarely seen in retailers tanks. We raised these on newly hatched Siberian Brine Shrimp & then onto our Red crumb. They are always thin looking even after heavy feeds.

Granular food with colour enhancer & attractor.

Just about the best dried food I have found. Contains a very active attractor. I feed it to killies, livebearers, catfish, cichlids & shrimps such as Triops & all take it with great gusto.

I grow coffer tail guppies to adult size in only 10 weeks using brine shrimp & this food. I only feed it once a day !

Rainbow & Angel fish fry are not easily fed prepared foods but are being fed this product by those supplied with great results.

Both grades can be fed to micro, grindal or white worm cultures as a bio-encapsulation food. I sell this to fishermen who add this to pork luncheon meat to make a paste & use it as groundbait or on the hook. Due to high attractor qualities of the food it has proved a winner in catching more fish.

Feed catfish by making a paste which sinks to the bottom. I feed Corydoras & Ancistrus this way & they love it. Wholesalers feed this to 'L' numbers from the wild & they also eat it.

I'm not kidding here, this food is really good......

This food is used by many ornamental fish breeders around the World. Guppies for example are raised to adult size in only 3 months by commercial breeders using this product in their diet.
The Fp.gardneri clauseni Akure (Yellow) shown below was fed this food exclusively for 3 months.

A fishermans tale.....

A fisherman mate of ours tried this food out on the river bank by baiting the area he was fishing with the red crumb shown above. He was catching fish all day whereas the pegs either side showed little interest.
This proves the attractor qualities of the food.

Food so far sent to the USA, Canada, Sweden, Portugal, Malta, China, Denmark, Norway, Australia, Singapore, Turkey, Italy.
___________________________________________

You can bioencapsulate other vitamins or medicines such as a de-wormer by adding it to a solution & making up a paste.

Don't take my word on how good it is. These comments are from breeders who have tried it.......

'Thanks for the food, I've got some week old angel fry and some N.kilomberoensis fry that are both eating it'.

'I got the new food today looks good value.'

'I am geting very good results with Tims new food, my Epiplatys love it,and so do my scripts they gulp it down,It brings out the colour of annulatus and roloffi,I have a lot of E.infrafasciatus fry that I feed only with the new food, they are growing fast and the colours are very bright. Regards Gordon Clarke (302-02)'.

'....contact Tim for some of the food he is selling. It is top quality.
Even my fussy Rivulus xiphidius take it---and have doubled in size since I started feeding them on it.
I do believe that Tim's is the superior product if we want healthy killifish that grow fast and lay gobs of eggs. Its nutrional profile is way above anything else I have seen so far... High protein and high fat/oil is what fish need.
