Good afternoon,

Treats:
Freeze Dried Superba Krill 1/4 lb
Freeze Dried Earth Worms 1/4 lb

Staple:
Ken's Premium Cichlid Pellets 3.5mm 1/2 lb
Ken's Premium Cat Fish Pellets 1/2 lb
Ken's Earth Worm Sticks 1/2 lb
Ken's Sinking Spirulina Sticks 1/2 lb

Blood Red Parrot Pellets 6.69 oz
Algae Wafers

Replace all foods January 2012.

I plan to go feed the creek by my house soon. I have a TON of flakes and some random pellets that I will never use....

Good for you supporting our natural wildlife and finding a good use for food that would otherwise be thrown in the trash!

Good morning,

For the next Ken's Foods order, I'm trying the following:

Ken's Freeze Dried Meal Worms 1/8lb x 2
Ken's Freeze Dried Red Shrimp 1/8thlb x 2 (says for large fish so it should be a good size, no photo for this one)

Hello,

I placed an order with Ken's yesterday for:

1/8lb Meal Worms (1)
1/8lb Red Shrimp (1)

3.65L Activated Carbon (2). I found Ken's price on this item to be anywhere from $2 to $9 or so cheaper, for the same brand, than some other online shops. Big difference!

I LOVE Ken's! He has such fantastic food & my fish love it. His cichlid pellets are fantastic. I have to try some more of his stuff. I didn't realize he had freeze dried food now

Good afternoon,

My shipment of new foods and carbon just arrived. The Meal Worms look great and so do the Red Shrimp. Nice sizes in each.

Tomorrow is treat day, so I'm going to feed the Meal Worms and see if they are a hit or miss. I'm sure they will be a hit.

Hi Amanda,
I've been ordering from Ken's for about a year now and I've always been very satisfied with what I've received. I highly recommend them. Fast shipping too!

Ken

Thanks Pirahnah3! Something fun to do.

Too, from Ken's, a lot of times they may give you samples or even extra of what you actually ordered. Not always, but sometimes. This time I got 2 1/4 ounce of Meal Worms when I ordered 2oz's. Every little bit helps.

I use Chef's scales to weigh them myself.

Hello,

The Meal Worms were a BIG HIT! Photos below of them pre-soaking in diluted Garlic Guard/Vita Chem and water. The fish loved it!

Good morning,

The Red Shrimp were also a Big Hit this morning. All of the fish just tore it up!

I was really surprised at the difference between the shrimp and krill when it comes to appearance, size. I'm glad that I now have 2 more varieties of foods for my fish. My fish are happy, so I'm happy too.

Yeah! My new fish foods arrived yesterday.

The Kerri Tetras just went nuts for the Spectrum Thera A Small Fish, (NLS) food. None of it even had a chance to reach the bottom. This is the first time I've used this type/brand of food.


(NLS-New Life Spectrum) Thanks JaySee! (I have seen him mention this brand on numerous occasions).

Hello,

I ordered the smallest quantity that I could order for just about all of them. Still, a lot of food! Ken's Fish Foods are just wonderful!
