Carotenoid Plus by Ranarium is a high impact, color enhancer that is safe to feed to reptiles, amphibians, birds and other animals.
Carotenoids are mainly yellow, orange, or red fat-soluble pigments that are responsible for the bright colors of many plants. These same pigments can also flow upstream into animal life and are responsible for some of the most brilliantly colored animals on the planet. Ranarium’s Carotenoid Plus avoids the use of “filler” ingredients, and focuses on using high quality ingredients. For a more complete dietary supplement regiment you can combine Carotenoid Plus with Ranarium’s Vitamin A or Ranarium’s Cal-Bee+D3 and your favorite Vitamin and Mineral supplement.
The ingredients in this product provide a substantial source of carotenoids including, but not limited to, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene, capsanthin, and beta-cryptoxanthin.
How to use Carotenoid Plus
It is recommended to supplement Carotenoid Plus into your pets food at every 7-10 days. Amphibian and reptile owners may dust or even gut load feeder insects. Dart frog keepers that produce their own flightless fruit flies will include a small amounts in fruit fly media. For herbivore reptiles and birds, it is recommended to dust over greens and seeds. Our favorite method for live prey insects such as fruit flies or crickets, is to dust the insects before feeding them to our animals.
We use a “shake and bake” method by placing a small amount of Carotenoid Plus into a deli cup, then adding some flies. We shake and swirl the container until the flies are fully coated, then feed them to our frogs and reptiles. Avoid dumping excess dust onto plants or into the enclosure. any remaining dust should not be put back into the original container as this may contaminate it.
Once opened, this product is good for approximately 6 months. You can extend its life by keeping it refrigerated between use.
