For those of you who have never seen Pablo's 2000 gallon marine tank.

This little show tank is approx 10ft long, 8ft deep, and 4ft high.

Pablo's saltwater aquarium contains species such as; Butterfly Fish, Parrot Fish, Philippine Regal Angels, Majestic Angels, Rock Beauty, Moorish Idol, Achilles Tang, Cuban Hogfish, Clown Tang, Blue Ring Angel, Blue Face Angel, Trimaculatus Angel, and the list goes on and on ..... and they all eat New Life Spectrum exclusively.

Some of these saltwater species only feed on specialized foods in the wild, such as Coral Polyps and Sponges, and will usually turn their noses up to commercial foods. These finicky species not only accept New Life Spectrum, they are thriving on it.
Many of the fish shown in the photos below have now been eating NLS exclusively for close to a decade!

Before NLS this was unheard of, and many of these species would die within a short period of time once placed in captivity. No other commercial food can produce results like you see below! The only people that will tell you that you must feed a varied diet, is people that do not feed NLS exclusively. With NLS food there is no need to vary the diet, everything they need is already in the food.

For the most part freshwater fish are very easy to keep alive, and even on only so-so foods will show decent color (sometimes), breed, and live for several years. I suspect that most could be kept alive on nothing more than crumbled up supermarket dog chow.

But ..... try doing that with some of the more sensitive marine species, such as Rock Beauty, Moorish Idol and Achilles Tang.

Most commercial dry pellet foods won't even keep them alive, let alone thriving such as in Pablo's tank. This is exactly the reason that marine people tend to feed a wide 'variety' of food to their fish, because in the past, if they didn't, their prized specimens would waste away within a few months. For many years freshwater fishkeepers have followed the same path, sort of a hit & miss type of feeding in the hopes that all of the fishes dietary requirements are being met.
What's lacking in one formula, will hopefully be found in the next container on the shelf.

The true acid test of any fish food is with some of these ultra sensitive marine species, not with fresh water fish.

The reason we show this marine aquarium is to illustrate that if marine fish can do this well on an exclusive diet of NLS, can you imagine what it could do for your freshwater fish?

This is what you can expect to see when you feed your fish NLS exclusively! cool.gif
