Rogger's Reef Food
Chef Marine is an owner-operated company located in Florida, which produces Rogger's Fish Food. To assure the freshness and quality of our product our food is hand processed, produced in small batches and flash frozen before
shipment to clients. Every single ingredient is hand picked, chopped, blended and packaged by Chef Rogger Castells, the creator of Complete Blend and Complete Blend Plus. In the elaboration of our fish food we do NOT use any preservatives, binders, fillers or exoskeletons. Rogger's Fish Food is proudly made in Florida for aquarists worldwide.
I started working with Marine Aquariums at a very early age. I was seven when my aunt gave me my first ten gallon fish tank. This was originally set up as a fresh water tank that quickly became a saltwater tank. From there it evolved into many successful marine aquariums.
In the early nineteen eighties my lifelong passion as an aquarist flourished when I obtained my Scuba Certification and spent several summers observing fish behavior in the Galapagos Islands. It was at this point in my life that my respect for the sea and its inhabitants became an integral part of my life. My second passion was in the culinary arts. After obtaining my culinary degree from Johnson & Whales University in Rhode Island I started my career as a Professional Chef.
It's been a long journey with lots of trial and errors but my two passions have finally come together. My years of marine research and love for the culinary arts have facilitated the creation of Roger's Fish Food. As word got out, my fish food became quite popular among my local fish club members, Florida Marine Aquarium Society, which I currently preside. I am proud to now make my fish food accessible to aquarists around the country. The products now come in two proudly presented formulas Complete Blend and Complete Blend Plus.
THE FOOD WORKS
All blends are formulated thick to stay solid even after it thaws; they are not intended to spread all around the tank like most other brands do.
There are many advantages to this, the first one is the lack of waste generated by floating debris that ends up in your overflow or under rocks, it also helps develop a pecking order among your fish so everyone gets a chance to eat over a extended more natural period of time.
There is no need to rinse Rogger's reef food, each ingredient is of high quality human consumption and rinsed with RO/DI water prior to being mixed.
Rogger's Reef Food contains fresh Garlic and also Selcon, there is no need to add anything else to the food.
The food can be use frozen on a "feeding Clip", it will thaw very fast and will hold together until completely consumed.
Ever since Chef Rogger introduced us (World Wide Corals) to his Complete Blend and Complete Blend Plus Reef Foods we have seen colors in our reef that we did not see before. Our corals and fish are much more bright and lively. We attribute a lot of it to feeding our reefs Roggers' Food on a consistent basis. Our Koi Tang always showed tiny signs of white but much more yellow. However once we started to feed him Roggers' Food he shows less yellow and much more white...success!
