    Was wondering if there are any good sources for frozen oyster eggs and pure spirulina (not mixed with a heap of other stuff). Most of the links I find are overseas based and I am trying to get some locally.

    Any of the MASA sponsers have in stock ?

    I use this for the spirulina:

    Tropic MarinĀ® IMMUVIT

    Tropic MarinĀ® IMMUVIT activates the immune defence in fish and supplements food with essential B vitamins. Research studies have shown that the betaglucane contained in yeast naturally activates the immune system of fish and therefore stimulates the resistance of fish to diseases. The water-soluble B complex vitamins contained in yeast and spirulina ideally supplement every food. Vitamin B12 in spirulina arouses the feeding behaviour in fish. Furthermore, spirulina also contains asthaxanthin which improves the colour and fertility of fish.

    Composition: Spirulina, brewer's yeast, extracted and non-extracted.

    As for the oyster eggs, I think most shops keep this as well as lobster eggs and fish roe.

    Hi Manic,
    When I asked for Oyster eggs I received a look of total amazement, as far as the specific shop was concerned they never heard of it ! If any MASA dealer could PM me if they have stock it would be greatly appreciated

    I've seen frozen lobster eggs in pet shops but I'm sure you can use the spirulina tablets that humans take
