This formula meets the growth requirement of this highly active and often aggressive fish species, while helping to ensure proper conditioning and repair of body and fins.

Questions & Answers

What are the advantages of feeding sticks / pellets / granules / micro granules to my fish?

Sticks do not disintegrate rapidly and as such do not pollute the aquarium. They can be broken into smaller pieces and offered to small and large fish alike. The sinking formulas are ideal for bottom feeding and nocturnal species, whereas the floating formulas are ideal for surface feeders. Pellets, granules and micro granules are available in floating, slow sinking, and sinking formulations, and as such are suitable for a wide variety of feeding habits. They possess high nutritional densities as a result of the extrusion process and are ideal for fish with high metabolisms. Additionally, they are most compatible with automatic feeders.

I just bought Bug Bites Shrimp formula and I noticed there is copper in the ingredients list. Is this not toxic to shrimp?

Copper is a necessary trace element that should be included in crustaceans’ diets, as it is required in the biological metabolic processes that occur when the animals shed their exoskeletons as they grow. Beyond this, micro-elements or trace minerals such as chromium, cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium and zinc are required in small quantities and participate in a wide variety of biochemical processes . They are involved in cellular metabolism, the formation of skeletal structures, the maintenance of colloidal systems, the regulation of acid-base equilibrium, immunity enhancement, stress release, disease resistance and other physiological functions. They are also important components of a number of hormones and enzymes.

Is the salmon included in Bug Bites farmed or wild caught?

The salmon used in Bug Bites is farmed and has received MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certification.
