Questions & Answers

What are the advantages of feeding flakes and crisps to my fish?

Flakes are ideal for surface feeding species. They can be broken down into smaller pieces or kept intact, which allows them to be offered to fish of all sizes, and even fry.

Crisps do not disintegrate rapidly and as such do not pollute the aquarium. Their hard format is ideal for species which prefer to grind / nibble / rasp at their food. This food format helps to stimulate natural competitive feeding behaviors. Additionally, crisps are ideal for nocturnal feeders.

What foods can I feed my Betta?

We recommend feeding Bug Bites Betta formula as a staple daily diet, but it is beneficial to vary your Betta’s diet with frozen shrimp, glassworms and bloodworms. Additionally, we recommend Fluval Color Enhancing formulas, which include 25% krill, an excellent palatability enhancer that also dramatically improves fish colors.

I just opened my container of fish food. For best value to my fish, how long is it good for?

For optimal nutritional value, a container of fish food should be consumed by your fish within a period of 6 months. During this time, it is best to keep it in a cool, dry location.
