Nekton Rep Color 750g.
  • Brings out brilliant colors in reptiles and amphibians
  • Prevents colors from fading
  • Replaces Nekton-Rep until desired color is achieved

Nekton-Rep-Color offers the same excellent nutritional support as Nekton- Rep with the added color enhancers canthaxanthin and apocarotinal. These color enhancers allow the pet owner to evenly improve the color of their pet, because the carotenoids are naturally deposited in the shell, fatty- tissues, and skin. Nekton-Rep-Color also prevents colors from fading.

Nekton-Rep-Color consists of vitamins, trace elements, amino acids and calcium. Nekton-Rep-Color has been the herpetologist's choice for decades and is used in zoos and wildlife parks world-wide. Nekton-Rep-Color will improve skin growth, mucous membrane function, and the animal's ability to metabolize nutrients. Nekton-Rep-Color will also accelerate growth while simultaneously improving bone structure, and can help prevent leg dragging. Given regularly, Nekton-Rep-Color has a positive influence on muscular, glandular, and neural development, in addition to increased fertility and birth rates in reptiles and amphibians.

Nekton-Rep-Color is a soluble in cold water and can be administered in a variety of ways, depending on what is best for the particular reptile or amphibian. Nekton-Rep-Color can be aded to soft, moist food, it can be used to dust feeder insects, it can be added to drinking water, and it can even be injected under the skin of feeder animals. For amphibians spending a significant portion of their life in water, it can simply be added to the terrarium water and they will absorb Nekton-Rep-Color through their skin.

Decades of use in zoos, wild-life rehabilitation facilities, and veterinary hospitals demonstrates a track record that is second to none in the pet industry. Nekton supplements set themselves apart from other offerings due to the quality of the raw materials used in their production and, more importantly, the proportion of these materials to one another in each product.

Ingredients: Dextrose, calcium carbonate, ascorbic acid, niacinamide, vitamin A, DL-alpha-tocopherol acetate, d-calcium pantothenate, ferrous sulfate, DL-methionine, L-lysine, riboflavin, menadione sodium bisulfite, zinc sulfate, manganese sulfate, artificial flavoring, canthaxanthin, apo-8- carotenoic acid ethyl ester, pyridoxine hydrochloride, thiamine hydrochloride, magnesium sulfate, copper sulfate, folic acid, cholecalciferol (vit. D3), calcium iodate, cobalt sulfate, vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin).


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 of tweezers.

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 Nekton-Rep-Color and can be fed to the animal as usual.


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 1/4 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 drinking water.

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. gallons).

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.
