Ocean Nutrition has just introduced a whole new line of new frozen feed for saltwater critters; its formulation is designed to provide nutritious meals to all reef inhabitants, from the smallest rock dwellers to the largest fish we keep in home aquaria. I showcased two of the four new products, Reef Formula One and Reef Formula Two, in my recent post, and now it’s time to see what Ocean Nutrition has prepared for our favorite finned friends with their Fish Only Formula.
Fish Only Formula is formulated to feed nearly all small- to medium-sized reef dwelling fish in home aquaria. It contains ingredients that omnivorous and carnivorous fish feed on naturally in the reef environment. Infused with essential vitamins and probiotics, Fish Only Formula does not contain binders, artificial preservatives, coloring, or terrestrial vegetable matter.
Below is a list of ingredients found in Fish Only Formula, as well as a guaranteed analysis:
Shrimp, plankton, clams, krill, brine shrimp, mussels, oysters, fish eggs, squid, silversides, nori, fish oil, garlic, dulse, dried Bacillus sp. fermentation product, dried Pediococcus sp. fermentation product, dried Enterococcus sp. fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus sp. fermentation product, choline chloride, magnesium sulfate, iron, inositol, a-tocopherol acetate (source of vitamin E), zinc sulfate, manganese sulfate, calcium carbonate, biotin, calcium pantothenate, niacin, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (source of vitamin B6), riboflavin (source of vitamin B2), L-ascorbic acid (source of vitamin C), potassium iodide, vitamin A supplement, citric acid (preservative), folic acid, thiamine mononitrate (source of vitamin B1), menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of vitamin K3 activity), cobalt carbonate, vitamin B12 supplement.

FEEDING WITH FISH ONLY FORMULA
I really like Fish Only Formula, both for the fact that it helped me with feeding my finicky Blue Star Leopard Wrasse (Macropharyngodon bipartitus) that refused to take all other foods I gave her, and that the blend comes in a variety of sizes, and can accommodate all the fish in my reef tank. My verdict: fish like it!
Ocean Nutrition Fish Only Formula comes in an 8 oz. (227g) flat pack.
