Bottom Feeder/Pleco

Color Enhancing




Since the dawn of time, insects have been hunted by fish in the wild as they offer a widely available, nutrient-rich food source. This instinctive feeding habit is the foundation behind Bug Bites™, which are formulated with Black Soldier Fly Larvae as the #1 ingredient. Employing a unique and sustainable process, our larvae are raised on human-grade fruits and vegetables to provide several "super food" benefits versus any ordinary insect.
  • Excellent amino acid profile
  • High in protein
  • Low in carbs
  • Easily digestible
  • Appealing taste fish crave

Bug Bites™ are more than just insects. We’ve included other excellent protein sources like whole salmon, which is rich in Omega 3 and 6 for healthy skin, scales, fins and colors.

We’ve also added essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other trace nutrients that are vital to the health of your fish, while avoiding artificial colors and preservatives to make Bug Bites™ a completely nutritious and balanced food.

Our ingredients are prepared in small batches within our own facility for complete control and quality assurance. The proximity of our ingredients also allows us to maximize freshness and select items at their peak nutritional value.

Using a unique and sustainable cultivation process, Black Soldier Fly larvae (long known for their nutritional properties) are grown under controlled conditions as they feed off of unconsumed fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. The larvae are then dried and mixed with high quality salmon, essential amino acids and minerals to offer a nutritious daily diet.
