OK, so lets say that I want try something another than paprika. And I can't get superpig right now. What are my possibilities? I was searching for something containing that astaxanthin
. I found these pills called HEMA Astaxanthin cps.30 (I think the web site link is not necessary because of the language used there - czech). There is written that one pill contains 4g of "pure astaxanthin". When I found more complex composition, I found this:
Haematococcus pluvialis extract 10%
oil from safflower 80%
vitamin E 10%
with some "pill encapsulation" made of:
I just wanted to ask, if this source of astaxanthin would be safe for the frogs. My idea was to make powder from the pills and add them to my calcium/vitamin powder, but when I see the composition of pills, I can't get rid of thoughts that it would not be even technically possible to make powder of them, because of the high amount of water and gelatin. Other source of that magic astaxanthin I did'n found in stores (yet).
The best choice so far seems to wait until I get the SuperPig thing or try some paprika (I am really curious about dangers of paprika. So far I read mostly positive XPs).
Another thing that I wanted to know (I swear it's the last one for some time, I don't want to bother you, and I really appreciate all the time you give me
) if it is possible to supply tadpoles with extra portion of carotenoids.
- buy some food with extra amount of carotenoids in it or
- ad carotenoids directly to the water where tadpoles are kept with some "caroten water solution". But I am not sure if this choice would be safe.
Do you have some advice please?
Again.. thank you for your time and patience. I really appreciate it!
