New food – revisited (updated)

Three months ago, I posted about a new fish food soon to enter the market. I was given a 1 oz. container of the flakes and the two sizes of pellets (actually sticks) in advance, which I added to my Tanganyikan pantry. This new food, called CSPro, is a Calanus and Spirulina mix made by AquaLife.I have to say my Tanganyikans love both! The flakes are broken by hand rather than augered, which results in larger pieces of flake in the container instead of tiny crumbs. Larger flakes lead to more of the food being consumed and fewer small pieces ending up on the substrate or stuck under rocks and decorations.  With two sizes of stick pellets (1/8″ and 1/16″ diameter), you can accommodate both your small and large cichlids as well as any bottom feeders, especially if they’re averse to flakes. Look for CSPro to hit store shelves next week. I don’t have distribution information at this time, so I can’t pinpoint who will carry it. I’ll provide an update when I have that information.

UPDATE (10/10/16): The food is now available at a few LFSs, primarily in the southeast, but is making its way to store shelves. You can also purchase it online from Aquariumconnection.com.
