Aquarium Fish food, tropical fish food
Selecting Aquarium fish food for your aquatic creatures can be a very
difficult decision. As many fish have different requirements for their diet,
it is vital that you are certain that you are meeting all of the nutritional
needs of your fish. In order to be able to select the best tropical fish
food for your aquarium, you need to research each of the species of fish
within your tank and select the food according to their needs.
Aquarium fish food comes in a wide variety of different types. The primary
types are live food, flaked food, pellet food, frozen food, and algae
wafers. Tropical fish food primarily comes as flaked food or pellet food,
that allow you to select the types you need in order to give your fish a
balanced diet. If you have Corydoras catfish or algae eaters such as the
Rubber nose Pleco, you will want to balance their diet by adding an algae
wafer in addition to the flaked or pellet food you provide them, to ensure
they are getting the vegetable matter they need in order to be healthy.
As Aquarium fish food can also be live or frozen, you will need to consider
which is more appropriate. If all of your fish are carnivores, you may need
to use live food in order to entice them to eat. However, live fish alone
usually will not supplement the diet of your fish, so you need to make
certain you look into methods required to give them the vegetable nutrients
normally found in flaked or pellet food.
Once you have selected which aquarium fish food you will feed to your fish,
it is important that you care for the food so it does not spoil or be
rendered useless. If you are feeding flaked or pellet food, it is important
that you seal the lids after use so moisture can not seep into the
container. This can cause mold to grow, and ruin your fish food. Frozen fish
food should be kept in the freezer, and only removed at feeding time. If you
are feeding frozen prawns, you will want to dethaw the prawn before feeding.
Do not thaw and refreeze frozen foods, as this induces bacteria growth which
can be harmful for your fish.
If you are using live food as your aquarium fish food, it is important that
you take the time to make certain that you have cleaned the food to the best
of your ability and that you are only feeding healthy fish or worms to your
fish. This is the most difficult route, and your fish should be fed with the
greatest amount of care.
If you take your time and do your research, you should be able to pick the
best aquarium fish food for your fish, so that they may grow to be healthy
