Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality turtle staple food. I've bred turtles and tortoises for the past 35 year's. I feed a mixture of Reptomin, and cubed beef steak to my smaller water turtles with amazing results. Generation after generation of all kinds of cool turtle morphs, and albino turtles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sticks Don't Float I have been using this product for 13+ years. The last 3 batches of sticks no longer float. My turtle won't eat them unless they are floating and it is clogging my filter. Also, there is suddenly a rainbow film on the water and my turtle has an unusual film on her, too. Something has changed. I have loved this product but cannot recommend it anymore.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stinky food I've used the food for 16 years and they have changed it. The first ingredient is fish crude instead of fish meal. The food is really making the tank stink.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Food sticks I have been using Reptomin food sticks for my 20 year old Reeves turtle ever since we got her. I read other reviews and responses regarding something changing recently. I just bought a large 10oz. size and the food sticks begin sinking within 10 seconds to the bottom of the aquarium. I had another smaller bottle do this and returned it and all was normal until I bought this larger size. If the formula hasn't changed, what would cause the food to immediately sink and not float as it always has. My turtle will not go looking for the food on the bottom so if this is the new, I will have to look for another alternative food. I would always give this product a high rating until recently in which I would rate the product very low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal Well-Balanced Nutritious Product Thank you from the bottom of my heart for continuing this excellent quality product and not changing it for all these years. I have been raising my pride & profound red eared slider for over 31 years thus far with this exquisite product as being a staple to his diet. Since 06/30/2014 I have adopted a little red eared slider who too has been growing strong and healthy because of this awesome food source. I have been a “ninja turtle momma” since I was seven years old and have loved it all along. I have always been impressed with Reptomin and the blessings the nutritional value and high quality ingredients have provided my pride :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why change a winning formula? My 40 year old terrapin has flourished on ReptoMin sticks, BUT the formula seems to have changed; I bought a big tub of the new wavy ones without noticing, he took one in his beak and spat it straight out, and now recoils in horror when I try to sneak them in, all flippers waggling as he leaps back. I've cleaned out the local shop of all its old stock, they tell me they can't get any more and I'm now desperate, as he'll clearly starve rather than eat the new ones. I totally recommend the old formula, but cannot recommend the new ones because he hates them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Floating turtle food sticks I've used these sticks for my 3 turtles for 15 years and have always been satisfied. This last can we bought is not the same! THEY NO LONGER FLOAT. We called to let the company know and was told they did not change the composition of the sticks. Very disappointed in the product and company

I have a female 8 yo red eared slider. She eats the Reptomin Jumbo Sticks as the main staple of her diet. How much should I feed her? She seems to always be "starving"!

Asked by: halekahakai
You want to feed approximately one stick per inch of shell diameter, or 8 sticks, twice a day. You can occasionally provide a bite or two of raw shrimp or fish as well as crickets or mealworms as special treats as well. BREX

Are there any kinds of food for Pig-nose Turtle?  And are there any agencies of your company in China?

Asked by: Bright
We really don't cater to wild turtles, and the pig-nosed turtle is a species that is extremely difficult to keep in captivity which should only be attempted by national aquariums. Here is an excerpt on feeding from "...thrive on a diverse diet of figs, apples, other fruits, eel weed (Vallisneria sp.), whitebait (Pisces) and shrimp per one source2. I recommend inclusion of a strong brand name commercial tortoise or box turtle food (Mazuri, ZooMed, etc…) with Vit. D3 content. Given that UV-B penetration of water is sub-optimal & they generally don’t bask, dietary Vit. D3 is necessary so consider a quality Vit. D3 supplement. Flavia said her's like aquatic plants (like water lettuce), and she recommended they be part of the diet. Menikos suggested Spirulina algae wafers.".... BREX

My dog ate a large container of these floating turtle sticks. Are they toxic to dogs in large amounts?

Asked by: Stell
They are not toxic at all. He may get diarrhea due to eating something he is not used to, but they won't harm him. BREX
