Pod Pate by AlgaeBarn
Pod Pate is an excellent nutritional supplement designed to cater to the dietary needs of small marine life like the Biota Captive Bred Mandarin Fish. It consists of carefully preserved copepods that resemble the live adult copepods we offer at AlgaeBarn. The Pod Pate not only fosters an enthusiastic feeding response but also aids in easing the demand on your live copepod populations.
A key feature of Pod Pate is its remarkable shelf-life. An unopened can remain fresh on the shelf for more than 3 years! Just refer to the bottom of the can for the specific expiration date. Once opened, you can store Pod Pate in the refrigerator with the lid on for up to 1 week. For portions you can’t consume within the week, simply freeze and thaw when ready to use. The handy canned packaging, coupled with the extensive shelf life, ensures a nutritious and tempting food source is always available.
Feeding Time for Captive Bred Mandarin Fish
At AlgaeBarn, we frequently serve Pod Pate alongside Nano Brine to our Biota Captive Bred Mandarin fish. This routine ensures that our mandarins are accustomed to a readily available and storable dry food source. We recommend Pod Pate for anyone with small marine life or if you’ve purchased a captive bred mandarin from us.
Interestingly, Mandarin fish feed similarly to hummingbirds — they graze throughout the day. By augmenting their diet with Pod Pate at regular intervals, the mandarins can consume multiple substantial meals while continually snacking on live copepods. This balanced diet helps mandarins consume enough calories for healthy growth and development.
