Nekton Rep Color 35g. Develops deep colors and brings out faded ones
The same formula of important vitamins such as vitamin A and D3, essential amino acids and vital mineral elements for good health and condition plus the carotenoids Canthaxanthin and Apocarotinal.
NEKTON-REP-COLOR-COLOR is also in a position to prevent many deficiencies and thus help avoid health disorders.
Canthaxanthin and Apocarotinal (apo-8-carotenoic acid ethyl ester) are carotenoids, an important group of natural reddish/yellow pigments widely distributed in plants, as in tomatoes, carrots or oranges. Many carotenoids are precursors of vitamin A, that is, they develop certain vitamin A qualities in the body. This means they have a beneficial physiological value as well as enhancing colours or reviving pale and faded colors to their former beauty.
The carotenoids in NEKTON-REP-COLOR have been produced synthetically but are nevertheless identical to those the animals would find in their diet in the wild and therefore safe. Click here for complete product details in PDF format.
NEKTON-REP-COLOR is a powder supplement completely soluble in
cold water and simple to use. It enables the animal owner to
choose a way of administration most suitable to his pet's feeding
habits. Following methods can be used:
ADDED TO FEED
This is the simplest way. NEKTON-REP-COLOR can be mixed with the
reptile's plant or meat food: E.g., Tortoises - scatter a pinch of
NEKTON-REP-COLOR over chopped or shredded lettuce leaves after
wetting them slightly. Turtles - knead NEKTON-REP-COLOR into finely
chopped heart and form tiny balls that can then be fed by means
Similarly, various pieces of meat dusted with NEKTON-REP-COLOR can
be given in this manner. It is enough to dust just one or two
pieces of meat with NEKTON-REP-COLOR.
If the animals are fed on live fodder, it is better to dissolve the
NEKTON-REP-COLOR powder in water and inject this under the skin of
the animal used as fodder.
In the case of insect-eating reptiles and land amphibians put
the dose of NEKTON-REP-COLOR powder into a jar, let the insects in
and shake the jar. The insects are then covered in NEKTONREP
and can be fed to the animal as usual.
ADDED TO DRINKING WATER
This method is quite simple as NEKTON-REP-COLOR is soluble in cold
water and thus guarantees a full and reliable supply of vitamins
and trace elements. For land reptiles add 1 gram NEKTON-REP-COLOR
to a water ration of ¼ litre and this meets the animal's
vitamin needs completely. Use fresh water every day. At the
beginning remove all other drinking vessels so that the animal
is forced to use the one containing the vitamins. In time you will
find your pet prefers the water with NEKTON-REP-COLOR to its normal
ADDED TO TERRARIUM WATER
Amphibians living mostly in water can absorb the vitamins through
their skin or by swallowing the water. As a guide we recommend
a measuringspoonful (1 g) to 30 litres water (about 7 U.S.
Due to the variety of reptiles and amphibians it is impossible to
recommend an exact dose and we leave it up to the owner to
decide on the best amount himself. It depends very much on
how much nourishment the animal takes per day. The enclosed
measuring spoon is for your convenience. It holds 1 g.
Store in a cool, dark and dry place. In an unopened container
and correctly stored the vitamins in NEKTON-REP-COLOR remain
effective until date of expiration, see extra label.
Because of this supplement's higher content of vitamin D and
trace elements than in a complete feed, it may only be added
to 10% of a reptile's daily ration.
