Dainichi Cichlid Veggie FX Sinking Small Pellet 500g (3mm)
VEGGIE FX contains all natural minerals, nutrients and pigments designed
to enhance the color and luster of your cichlids. With six seperate
applications of color enhancing ingredients, the color promoting properties
are rivaled only by our other specialty formula, COLOR FX.
At the same time, there are absolutely no compromises
in the nutritional qualities. Raw, fully potent vitamins,
digestive enzymes and garlic ensure that the fish are healthy
and free of internal parasites. As in all Dainichi foods, we included
calcium montmorillonite clay to simulate the natural uptake of mineral particles as well as to bind and
neutralize metabolic toxins. Furthermore, the scouring action of the clay enhances the rejuvenation of the digestive tract which when combined with only two sources of starch (flour as binder and wheat germ as a source of vitamin E and B) ensures the maximum rate of digestion and assimilation of nutrients. The veggie formulas, VEGGIE DELUXE and VEGGIE FX are designed to prevent bloating. Rather than swelling to two or three times their original size, the pellets will break down to their granular state in the digestive tract of a fish. This feature makes it virtually impossible to cause "bloat" in even the most strictest of herbivores such as Tropheus species
Kelp, white fish meal, soybean meal, wheat flour (binder), shrimp meal, krill, spirulina, wheat germ, freeze-dried Cyclop-eeze®, calcium montmorillonite clay, brewer’s yeast, NatuRose® (Haematococcus algae), vitamin mix, mineral mix, garlic, protease (digestive enzyme) and natural gum.
Feed your fish only as much as they will eat (immediately) in a few minutes, 2 to 4 times daily. Smaller, more frequent feeding are preferred over a single large one. Do not pre-soak the food prior use! Pre-soaking washes out vitamins, color enhancers, other nutrients, and lowers the performance of the food. All Dainichi foods have a low inclusion of starches to prevent excessive swelling in the digestive tract. Pre-soaking of Dainichi cichlid food is absolutely not required nor beneficial!
