Feed your Clownfish, Wrasses, Tangs and other marine fish a complete and balanced diet that also leaves water cleaner and clearer with API Marine Optimal Protein Flakes. This healthy diet produces up to 30% less ammonia than leading competitor foods because it's made with nutritionally enhanced protein for maximum digestion. The more nutrients your fish digests, the less waste and ammonia is produced. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids to promote healthy growth and development and spirulina to enhance the vibrant colors of marine fish. Feed twice a day, and provide only as much as your fish will consume within three minutes.

Key Benefits
  • Complete and balanced diet for all marine fish including Clownfish, Wrasses and Tangs in flake form.
  • Optimal protein for healthy growth and healthy environment. Highly digestible recipe helps reduce waste and ammonia for cleaner, clearer water.
  • Spirulina and marigold enhance the vibrant colors of fish.
  • Contains marine fish oil for omega-3 plus shrimp and marine worms to promote vitality.
  • Yeast, garlic, vitamins C and E help support the immune system.

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. Sprinkle a few flakes per fish, only as much as they can consume within 3 minutes.

Clearing the Water

Clearing the Water

API offers reliable three-step filtration for tanks of all sizes with their FILSTAR XP Canister filters and wide variety of filter media. These powerful filters constantly circulate the water, trapping organic waste and odors, removing harmful ammonia and contaminants, and helping good bacteria to thrive in the tank.

Superior Nutrition

Feeding your aquarium inhabitants, whether they're tropical fish, turtles or newts, is something that can be tricky without the right food. API developed a special diet for every type of fish—one that's highly palatable, which leads to less waste in the tank. And that means less ammonia to cloud the water. For your turtle friends, premium floating pellets and stick treats provide multiple vitamins for a stronger, healthier shell.
