A pair of UBER RARE captive bred fish arrive at LRS HQ!

Recommended Posts

At LRS Foods we have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with the most talented and experienced breeders in the marine hobby. We have used their feedback and suggestions to improve our foods so they can be optimal for both hobbyists and breeders. Our Fertility Frenzy® broodstock conditioning diet has been credited with over a dozen captive breeding successes. The good news is that even the standard LRS blends contain the same fresh, diverse seafood ingredients as the "Who's Your Daddy" blend so your fish can thrive too. The freshness and diversity of our ingredients results in a nutritional profile unmatched by any other food in our hobby.


In 2017 Todd Gardner announced to the world that he had successfully captive bred yet another marine fish. This time it was the Rainfordia opercularis, which is an uber rare and hardly ever seen fish in the aquarium trade. There were previously only a handful in the US, so when we were fortunate enough to house a pair of these exotic fish we were extremely thankful. You can read all about these fish and how they were conditioned on LRS foods here: https://reefs.com/magazine/captive-culture-of-the-flathead-perch-208/
 

It is an amazing and humbling honor to care for fish which have been captive bred using our foods. They have settled in nicely, are eating LRS Chunky blend and seem to be inseparable. I shot this quick video tonight of them hanging out in their little cave.

Bautiful fish !  How much are they now that they're captive bred ?  Would love to own a pair for my nano.

Excellent story, Larry! Give Todd our regards when you see him next. He's a recipient of a WAMAS conservation/education award for the work that he did at his last school.
