Description

Feed your Cichlid a protein-rich diet scientifically formulated to promote healthy growth and cleaner, clearer water with API Optimal Protein Cichlid Floating Pellets Fish Food. It produces up to 30% less ammonia than leading competitors. These flakes contain garlic for added palatability and nutritionally-enhanced protein, squid and menhaden for optimal growth. Plus, you'l find a rich blend of plant proteins including spirulina, banana and pea for maximum digestion. The more nutrients your fish digests, the less waste and ammonia are released, leaving cleaner, clearer water. Feed twice a day, and provide only as much as your fish will eat within two hours.

Key Benefits
  • Floating pellets formulated with a wide range of natural ingredients to meet the nutritional requirements of large Cichlids.
  • Spirulina and carrot enhance the natural, vibrant colors of fish.
  • A highly digestible blend of insect and marine protein sources, as well as algae, to reduce waste and the amount of ammonia released.
  • Vanilla, banana, mussels and earthworms provide a highly palatable diet for all cichlids.
  • Yeast, garlic and vitamins C and E help support the immune system.
Precautions

Overfeeding, low palatability, and low quality lead to unconsumed or poorly digested food, which raises the ammonia level in the aquarium, causing cloudy water and even fish death.
Do not overfeed. Feed fish twice a day. Feed the amount of food your fish will consume within 3 minutes.

    Picky eaters

    By Oscarlover on Nov 12, 2021

    When I feed them anything else they pick at it. But this, they eat like they're starving and haven't eaten in days. Thank you.

    Not LARGE pellets

    By PattiK on Dec 9, 2019

    The quality of this food is great but was disappointed with a few things. The pellets are not what I would consider large. We have bought large in other brands and they are twice this size. Also, this jar lasts a long time but the one I just received expires 03/20. Seems a little soon! Definitely won't be done with them by then.

    I like this fish food

    By Jenn on Apr 28, 2018

    Floats and easy to clean out if fish doesn't eat. Doesn't leave the tank scummy.
