Provides balanced nutrition for herbivorous fish. Spirulina is an excellent source of ammino acids and natural immunity booster that improves the over all well being of fish, while enhancing fish colors.
I've been on a search for a quality spirulina flake for my Mbunas. Everything advertised as "Spirulina flakes" had spirulina way down on the ingredient list. This is 40% spirulina and it's the first ingredient listed. Even my goldfish and gouramis in my other tanks love it.
I wanted to get a flake food that had spirulina in it and knew what the percentage of spirulina was ( in this case 40%). My cichlids go crazy over this food and it is easily consumed by small and large cichlids
only used it a few weeks,,my females aulonacaras have gotten a bluish sheen, over the drab grey,,and my red shoulder males are brighter than electric blue ahli now. you will see better blues, much better A++
I've tried a few other spirulina flakes, but this stuff is by far the best. Even better than Omega super kelp. The nutrafin is a nice rigid flake that doen't turn to dust in the can like most others. The most important thing though, the Mbuna absolutely love it. All of my cichlids actually love it. They prefer it to NLS and dainichi, which are my staple foods. I feed this stuff about three times a week, and the splashfest is always a joy to watch. No other food creates such a ruckus!
This is the ONLY food my mbunas will eat. Have tried a few others at LFS recommendation, they just spit the stuff out. They LOVE this stuff and it is obviously good for them as they are very active and have excellent color.
The first thing I noticed about this stuff was the color. It's so dark green it's almost black. Looked and smelled rich. Well, my fish go crazy for it! They must have thought the same thing I did "Wow, good stuff"
My cichlids Love this food, 2 days after i started feedin it i had a kenyi holding fry, it increases there health and color amazingly, i'm halfway done the bottle and the flakes are still a very nice size. go to petsmart and but this food now it is amazing!
Fed this to mbuna and peacocks/haps, they ALL love it. This stuff HAS lg. and med. flakes period, NOT some flake and a buncha dust. I have noticed more activity and bolder blues/purples in fish after feeding them this compared to Omega, HBH, Ocean Nut. veggie formulas.
