Our krill is harvested from Arctic waters and contains extremely high amounts of omega-3's (about 40% of the total amount of essential fatty acid found in krill). Also found in high amounts are methionine and lysine, amino acids that the fish cannot produce themselves so they need to be present in supplied foods for optimum health. Krill contains astaxanthin, a carotenoid easily metabolized by most fish species and is responsible for the vibrant colors of tropical fish.

Worth every penny. I have mbuna haps/peas and they ALL go ballistic for this! I get some splashing from the cichlids with other foods but with this krill... just watch out and be ready to mop up the water. High color enhancement. Excellent source of calcium. Great rotor-rooter effect on fish GI tracts.
Krill are larger than brine so break up the krill if feeding small fish.
this stuff rocks. necessary, along with the SanFran brine ;-) , for any of those meat eaters out there. majority of my fish seem to get alittle more excited with krill over brine, and also seems to do more for color. alittle tougher to crush down than the brine.
