I have been working for the past few months on a Repashy Superfood formula of my own, and it is now ready to be offered for sale. I am calling it Ted’s Most Excellent, because it is truly a food that benefits a lot of different kinds of fish. I have not found anything that will not eat it…. yet. Let me know if you do!
Here is a video of the food in action:
TME started out as three different foods, each designed to meet a specific goal. They were eventually combined into one, and TME was born. Those goals were:
- Make a conditioning diet for breeding fish that can replace black worms, especially for Corydoras sp. and Apistogramma sp. I use a lot of black worm, and they are expensive. The food I designed has allowed me to cut my black worm use by 2/3… and I have reports from breeders who tested the food for me that they were able to get good production with no black worms at all when feeding this food!
- Make a highly nutritious diet that triggers fish to feed quickly so that wild fish can get good food during quarantine and be acclimated before they ship. TME does this. I use it with everything within a few hours after the fish arrive in the fish room, and everything is eating it readily within a couple days.
- Make a food so packed with nutrition that fish can be fed less of it less frequently with no malnutrition. I need the food to do this so I can spend less money feeding fish, and so that a well fed fish can be purged and shipped, often no seeing any food for 3-5 days, with no ill effects on the fish. TME has proven very effective at keeping purged fish in good condition, even small tetras.
The biggest difference between TME and the other Repashy Superfood diets is that I chose more expensive ingredients and use them in higher concentrations. Think of TME as a ‘super premium’ Repashy gel food. All the advantages of Repashy Superfood… but amplified.
The keys to the food’s success are in what is in the food, and what is NOT in the food. I emphasized proteins that are very attractive to all fish: mussel, insect, krill, squid, shrimp, fruit… And I stayed away from flavors that can turn some fish off, namely fish. There are no fish proteins in this diet at all. Piscivore species are just as attracted to mollusks and crustaceans, so there is no harm in leaving the fish out. The result is a fish food that fish are immediately attracted to the first time they smell it.
