Eagerly accepted by most medium to large cichlids.
Softens quickly which enables small portions to be bitten off by smaller fish.
The Spirulina content is easily digestible and is a rich source of protein, minerals and vitamins.
Low phosphorus content helps minimize algae blooms in the aquarium.
Contains P.D.P. (Pre-Digested Plankton) which quickly enhances colors and is easily digested.
Multi-vitamin supplements ensure optimum growth and disease resistance.
This pellet is especially good for Mbuna, large or small. Either way pellet is best when soaked until it softens. Large fish will take it whole, you can break it up with fingers for smaller fish. Mbuna readily feed on this pellet, and lots of my friends feed this pellet are also very happy with it's results. Your fish will love you for it !!
I bought a small container of these hoping to try something new. I soak all my pellets so i soaked these too and noticed they puff up quite a lot. They also fall apart quite easily when soak and therefore messed up the water a bit more then i would have liked.
But all my fish seemed to like it and took to eating them right away.
Dont' think i'd buy them again as they broke apart too much when soaked and expanded too much when soaked for me to feel comfortable feding them dry.
My Mbuna love these sticks. I break them into smaller pieces for the younger fish in the tank. This food keeps the water and tank clean. It is kind of expensive for the quantity. But the price won't deter me from buying this product.
i got these as a supplement to the other flakes and pellets i feed them. they do not seem to like it much. they will only eat it if i break it up into smaller peices, and do not get excited for it like other foods. i also have to soak it or they will not touch it. a friend of mine has had the same experience with it. not worth buying
I picked up a trial size to see if my cichlids would eat this stuff. I've read great reviews about how Spirulina seems to get the fish ready for breeding and that it helped in their overall appearance.
The fish accepted the sticks readily but were hesitant to get them off the surface. After finishing off the trial size I purchased an 8 oz bottle. For the past year they are fed a combination of Spirulina sticks with Hikari Complete and Gold.
The fish always seem to choose the Spirulina first....
Everyone has excellent colour and are thriving. While I intend on continuing to use the spirulina sticks, I will try out a cheaper alternative as the Nutrafin tends to be more expensive.
