Copious amounts of both fresh kelp and spirulina abound in this tasty mix. A balanced level of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids make this flake an excellent choice for both fresh and saltwater veggie feeders.
I did a good deal of research on what food to start feeding my dwarf mbunas. This is what i decided on. It is great for my 1.5" & 2" guys. They love it. While protein and ash %s could be lower it has good ingredients meaning good protein. Fiber % could also be high but my fish are happy and healthy.
This product is awesome. My mbunas simply love it. They always eat every bit and often fight over it as it tumbls to the sandy bottom. The protien content is a little high so i'm going to be using another food along with it but besides that it is excellent. The only drawback is I found the flakes to be a bit large but that's an easy fix.
I wrote them an e-mail. Never got a response. So, here it is:
I am very dissatisfied with your product. After reading your persuasive web site, I was sold. I bought a 12oz jar of Veggie Flakes. It is true, the flakes do not dissolve and cloud the water. Very nice.
My fish don't seem to like these flakes as much as others, but I don't hold that against you. Who knows?
What I HATE, tho, is that I have only used about 1/4 of the can, and the flakes are already so disintegrated that they are like particles, not flakes. I noticed this happening early, so I was extra gentle with the can, but still now the can is almost all just crumbs. It is really terrible. About the only thing these crumbs are good for is feeding small fry.
After trying many different brands, Omega one is the one my fish like the most, and it keeps them in flying colors! Always gone in seconds, never clouds up the water, Id recommend them to anyone with african cichlids. This is very similar to the kelp flakes, and I have the same good things to say about them. A good balance of protein and veggie matter.
