Facts about fish food nutrition

It's very important to maintain water quality and nutrition. 

Fish are a highly diverse group, there are herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores. and meeting each species' nutritional needs is very difficult, the fish food you choose should combine proteins, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements into a single diet. More important it should not contain artificial coloring, pigmentation, and fillers.

The nutrition supplied to your aquarium companions is the most important factor in keeping many species alive in captivity; yet enthusiasts will spend thousands of dollars on their fish, corals, aquarium stands, filters, heaters, lighting systems, reef controllers, and more. Yet when deciding their companions’ optimum diet, they either blindly follow the cues provided by armchair experts or choose their food based on the images on the label.

So the next question arises, Do I buy fish food with eye-catching images or try to read the ingredients??. It's always good to buy natural fish food that is made from 100 percent Marine-grade so that your aquarium tankmates get the best nutrition found in the natural habitat...This will give them natural colors and a good appetite and you will see them grow to their fullest potential. 


Good food should contain a whole meal (not just the meal mentioned), a balanced diet of spirulina, and most of all proteins - whole meal, Krill, sardine, Omega 3, necessary Vitamins, and a lot more. Please buy fish food which is free from Artificial Colours, Artificial Pigmentation, Free from ETHOXYQUIN and Free from Fillers...This will not only provide natural nutrition but also the tank habitats will look happier with good quality water.  

But there is a price to pay for a premium product...A minor adjustment to your pockets can go a long way to a healthy aquarium and you can call yourself a Proud Owner and showoff.
