Whenever I ask a question I expect to get info, along with opinions, it's just part of the process and nature of being on a forum. I don't have a problem with it, sometimes other's opinions are helpful, sometimes not. I just take away from it what I want, need or agree with and disregard the rest.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Yeah I meant nothing of the sort by my response. All info I can find shows the product has been completely discontinued. Giving fish supplements is nothing new. However it is normally done through food. I feel a lot of the best store bought fish foods out there contain axanthine and garlic. Most of the foods I have contain both. Common ones are NLS and Hikari products. There are other cheaper options out there though. My main staple food has high amounts of axanthine.

It's on Ebay as well-
Ultra Color FX by Gel Tex on eBay!

However, you could make your own and possibly save a bit of money, or add it to your food. (sorry if it's a touchy subject).

Also, I have a friend that swear by this, and it has high levels of several crucial caratenoids..
AquaBid.com - Your Aquatic Auction Website

Finally, those caretenoids are often sold as suppliments for birds, and as a food dye. You could use that form.

I'm sure Mikaila is very smart, I'm sure you are too, and by the way, so am I.

Just for the sake of accuracy, the product is not a food, it is a supplement. That's why in your 30 years of keeping fish you have not heard of feeding fish this way.

I'm extremely disappointed and offended at the judgmental nature of this forum's members. I joined because I was looking for help and pointers. Worse yet, NEITHER of you actually answered my question, instead, you chose to question my knowledge and judgement, make assumptions, etc.

In the future, please don't respond to my posts if you don't intend to actually answer my questions.
I find your response belittling and just plain rude. No one here is doing that to you. They are offering their service the best they know how. I assume you have done all of your own research to no avail and if that is the case, others may have a hard time finding this product as well so they can by all means suggest a product that is similar as you have asked for in the original post. In my experience, everyone here is SO VERY helpful and SO VERY kind. I haven't met such a nice group of people on a forum based site in my life. (and that dates all the way back to BBS times before the internet was mainstream) There is absolutely no reason for you to snap at one of these VERY nice people for even making the smallest amount of effort to help. Be courteous and kind, it will get you many places on a forum like this. Everyone is willing to help.

Back on topic, a supplement can also be added to food as well and as someone stated already you can find foods with this supplement. It doesn't always need to be added in its raw format.
