    Hi all
    PA is now carrying Nutramar Frozen Ova Prawn Eggs
    I have heard really great things on how good of a food this is for all coral especially SPS.
    I am going to order some on Monday...it comes frozen and will require 2nd day shipping so if we get a few people together we can obviously minimize the shipping.
    I can bring everyones product to the meeting.
    I know Billy is doing an order but I didnt want to complicate that with 2nd day shipping on this food...
    I am ordering on Monday so let me know if you want in on getting some. I will split the shipping based on how much you order so it should be reasonable for all.
    Here is a link to PA's site and the food...  Nutramar Frozen Ova Prawn Eggs at Premium Aquatics
    Here is the foods description:
    Nutramar Ova Prawn Eggs

    We have seen many requests recently for the discontinued Gamma Lobster Eggs from
    TMC. This food is now called Ova and offered by Quality Marine under the
    Nutramar line of premium foods. Gamma Lobster Eggs and Nutramar Ova are the same
    food, simply with different packaging and a different name.


    OVA is an ideal food for anthias, dragonets, pipefish, seahorses, nano-sized
    gobies, most juvenile fish species, filter-feeding invertebrates and corals! Ova
    is very rich in protein and natural HUFA's, this nutritious food is a must have
    when rearing fishes of nearly any species in the larval and post-larval stage.

    Eins, thanks for bringing up the offer. I have also heard it's good stuff.

    I didn't know if you knew it but PA will ship it via UPS Ground to you since we are only two days in transit from them.

    Yeah they say 2 days but its hit and miss from PA...sometimes I get it in 2 days other times 3
    I will talk to them about it and if they are OK with ground shipping I am all in for sure!

    C'mon Sone you know you want to order some....You cant let my corals be better fed than your....lol

    Thanks Eins, I still have about 3lbs of food that I made otherwise I would get some Rod's Food and Nutramar. BTW, mine is made with organic sea kelp from Nagano and kosher seafood fresh from the eastern seaboard. /site/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/_default/emoticons/wink.gif

    I want to use it in place of oyster eggs....that stuff is expensive

    Yeah that would be nice but mine isn't that nice. I just rinsed off the ingredients really well with RO water and tried sticking with more natural ingredients like real garlic instead of liquid garlic. Sorry for hijacking your thread. It is a good opportunity to share the cost on getting good frozen food that might not be able to find locally.

    Bill,
    May, I pay you at the meeting but just pick it up at your house sometime you are home? It's just a shameless ploy of mine to stare at your tank for hours again.
