Our stick feeds are freshly made & superior to any other sticks. They are not sourced from manufacturers who sell
the lower grade used by fishermen.
We have put high magnification shots of all our sticks so you can see they are not made up of cheap bulky ingredients.
No photo on this page has been colour enhanced or changed from the original shot.
Close ups are taken with a Canon 100mm 'L' Macro lens.
Beware of cheap sticks...

We recommend sticks be fed sparingly.



Not just for big fish. Lots of fish peck away at them including catfish & killies.
We feed them to guppies. As the sticks soften in the water they descend on them & pick away until nothing is left. Note the Corydoras aeneus on right getting in on the act.
I recommend feeding rich Earthworm sticks sparingly (one feed per week) to guppies. They are great for females especially.
Use the Spirulina sticks as they contain the roughage guppies really need.

The following photos were taken by Steve Chester in the UK who was kind enough to do a review on some of the newer sticks.
Ste is one of the best fish breeders in the UK (but don't tell him I said so :-) )


First generation from wild Danio rerio going crazy for the Mini Bloodworm sticks


Nematobrycon palmeri
juvenile at approx 4 weeks old, eating mini earthworm sticks until they can eat no more! They continue to peck at these all day keeping them filled and actively growing!


Nematobrycon palmeri
juveniles


Wild caught juvenile Pelvicachromis pulcher from Nigeria.
I picked these fish up last week with many looking pretty sorry for themselves after a long trip from Nigeria and several stops in wholesalers and shops with less than perfect water quality and parameters.


Now they are settled at my fishroom they are still shy but healing well and starting to eat well. Over the last week they have ate mainly live foods, however the second i placed the TA aquaculture Plankton sticks into their tank they went crazy, they fought over the sticks and devoured the lot within 5 minutes! Highly recommended!


Hyphessobrycon bentosi
fry at 10 days freeswimming, the lump behind is one small section of the new Plankton stick. They were actively grazing on this all day, this increases the growth rate of these beautiful fish and the new TA aquaculture stick foods will become part of my regular feeds in my fishroom.

This is a deep, rich brown stick. Beef Heart is a great conditioning food.
The close up photo shows just how good these sticks are.
I think these are one of the best sticks ever to be made. My experiments show all my fish go for them. The A.guajira below definately grew fast on these. I have not yet tried crushing them in a mortar & pesel for young fish but I'm guessing they would be dynamite.
We feed our Axolotyl's on these sticks & they really go for them.
