Easy Reefs Masstick Fish Food

Product Showcase: Easy Reefs Masstick Fish Food

Marine fish on natural reefs are always in the feed mode, as they hunt down food in the water column or pick for food on live rock as they swim in and around the reef. Many fish in a captive reef tank will typically not do this, as they consume most of their food in concentrated amounts when the reef keeper feeds the tank.

Well, there is one product out there that provides an alternative. Masstick fish food, manufactured by Easy Reefs, is a self-adhesive paste (yes, you read that right) you can stick on the aquarium glass or live rock, allowing fish to constantly pick over time and feed in a more natural manner.

The food is sold as a powder and all you have to do is add RODI (Reverse Osmosis and Deionization) water and knead the mixture in a plastic bag to create the paste. A ratio of one part water and two parts powder are recommended to achieve the right consistency. I added 7 mls of RODI water to the 14g of powder in my package.

As for shelf life, it will last 5 days if refrigerated and about 5 weeks if frozen. If you go the frozen route you can create some small cubes when the paste is soft by smushing it with some egg crate.

Masstick is comprised mainly of freeze-dried crustaceans, including shrimp, and it also includes two species of phytoplankton as well as macro algae. No preservatives are added and Easy Reefs says it uses only the freshest and highest quality ingredients.

One really cool thing about this food is that you can blend it with other types of foods to create your own “special sauce”.  Small amounts can even be used to feed LPS corals. To find out more information or to purchase this all natural food, please visit premiumaquatics.com.
