Repashy Super Green
This formula is specifically designed for freshwater green algae grazing species of fish and invertebrates. It contains moderate levels of protein and the first two ingredients are Chlorella and Spirulina Algae. This formula contains no animal based ingredients and is Vegan. This makes it quite different from our “Soilent Green” formula which also contains high levels of green algae, but contains whole fish, squid, and krill ingredients.
True herbivores and algaevores have longer digestive tracts in order to break down plant cell walls and extract the nutrients they encapsulate. Specialized feeders like this can have difficulty processing animal proteins and fats, and they are by no means a large part of their natural diet. Tropheus, Petrochromis, Ancistrus, Otocinclus and many other species of fish, as well as specialized algae eating Shrimp and Snails, should find this an excellent staple diet. Omnivorous species will also enjoy this as part of a varied rotation.
