Larry’s Reef Services has just updated their line of food blends. The blends include Reef Frenzy, Herbivore Frenzy, Fish Frenzy, Fertility Frenzy, Reef Frenzy Nano, Chunky, Fish Eggs, and Premium Seaweed. All blends contain high quality ingredients and a minimal amount of water. The scallop, shrimp, ocean perch and whitefish, and oysters and clams are sourced from the Carolina coast and are phosphate-free. Shrimp are always hand peeled, and fish are always fileted before being added to these blends. This prevents exoskeletons and bones from accumulating as waste in the aquarium. Larry’s Reef Services also produces their own probiotic blend, which is included in many of their food blends. Benefits of probiotics for fish include increased metabolism, easier digestion, increased nutrient absorption, strengthened immune system, production of compounds that inhibit pathogens, and beneficial bacteria that out-competes harmful bacteria and other micro-organisms. All ingredients are FDA certified human grade. These blends should be kept frozen.
Reef Frenzy provides excellent nutrition for an entire reef tank including marine fish, corals, and invertebrates. Ingredients in this blend include wild caught scallop, wild caught shrimp, wild caught ocean perch and whitefish, Piscine Energetics Mysis shrimp, squid, Euphasia pacifica krill, oysters and clams, zooplankton and rotifers, seaweed, blanched broccoli flowers, oyster eggs and ovarian tissue, highly unsaturated fatty acids, buffered ascorbic acid, Dunaliella salina algae, and LRS probiotic blend. Broccoli provides a good source of vitamins A and D. D. salina algae contains beta carotene, which boosts pigmentation and immunity. Buffered ascorbic acid, a type of vitamin C, is added to delay oxidation. Reef Frenzy is available in 8 ounce packages.
Herbivore Frenzy is perfect for tangs. This blend has been shown to get tangs to eat faster and better acclimate to new tanks. It has also helped to reverse head and lateral line erosion (HLLE) and improve pigmentation. Ingredients include wild caught scallop, wild caught shrimp, wild caught perch and whitefish, Piscine Energetics Mysis shrimp, squid, Euphausia pacifica krill, oysters and clams, Porphyra green and purple seaweed, blanched broccoli flowers, sea lettuce, highly unsaturated fatty acids, buffered ascorbic acid, D. salina micro-algae, and LRS probiotic blend. Herbivore Frenzy is available in 8 ounce packages.
Fish Frenzy is ideal for saltwater aquarium fish. It contains wild caught scallop, wild caught shrimp, wild caught ocean perch and whitefish, premium Piscine Energetics Mysis shrimp, squid, krill, fresh shucked clams and oysters, live California black worms added just before freezing, locally harvested marine fish eggs, highly unsaturated fatty acids, buffered ascorbic acid, D. salina algae, and LRS probiotic blend. The black worms and marine fish eggs will help get finicky fish to eat. The fish eggs are never dyed. Fish Frenzy is available in 8 ounce packages.
Fertility Frenzy, also called Who’s Your Daddy Blend, aids in breeding fish, especially clownfish. LRS researched for months with input from some of the most respected experts in marine breeding before creating this blend to ensure its success. This blend contains increased protein and DHA fat levels, which help fish maintain weight for increased spawns. It also has four strains of probiotic bacteria and a vitamin and mineral supplement. Astaxanthin and beta-carotene are also added to this blend to enhance pigmentation. Fertility Frenzy is a homogenized blend, having small particles held together with unflavored gelatin, which allows it to be fed to a wider range of brood stock and to be siphoned out of the tank easily if left uneaten. Fertility Frenzy is available in 8 ounce packages.
Reef Frenzy NANO
Reef Frenzy NANO is designed for small fish in nano tanks. It has all the ingredients as Reef Frenzy but without the vegetables and seaweed. It also comes in a smaller 4 ounce package. This blend has small particles, so it will not overwhelm simple filtration systems usually used on small aquariums.
Chunky Blend is great for large predators, eels, triggers, and puffers. It is a coarsely chopped blend containing wild caught scallop, wild caught shrimp, wild caught ocean perch, squid, E. superba krill, clams, oysters, buffered ascorbic acid, D. salina micro-algae, and LRS probiotic blend. Chunky Blend is available in 8 ounce packages.
Fish Eggs are a great option for picky eaters. LRS Fish Eggs contain 23% protein, which is 6 times higher than other frozen fish eggs on the market. They also contain high levels of DHA and EPA fats, which can boost metabolism in brooding stock and lead to increased spawns and fertility. These all-natural eggs are packaged and sold in their original egg sack, which helps to preserve freshness and ensure all natural juices and feeding stimulants are not washed away by excessive processing. Before feeding the eggs out, cut off a piece of the frozen egg sack and thaw in water. The Fish Eggs come in 6 ounce packages.
Premium Seaweed is Porphyra yezoensis, one of the best seaweeds to feed herbivores, sourced from certified international waters. This seaweed has been tested and shown to be free from over 400 possible contaminants and radiation. Premium Seaweed is available in 1 ounce packages, containing about 22 sheets each.
With such a wide selection to choose from, you are sure to find an LRS food blend that works for you. You can also be sure that the food will be high quality, so you can be completely comfortable feeding it to your tank’s inhabitants.
