Feed your small tropical fish a protein-rich diet scientifically formulated to promote healthy growth and cleaner and clearer water with API Optimal Protein Sinking Mini Pellets for Tropical Fish Food. It's a complete and balanced diet ideal for small tropical community fish. These flakes contain nutritionally-enhanced protein for maximum digestion and produce up to 30% less ammonia. The more nutrients your fish digests, the less waste and ammonia are released, leaving cleaner, clearer water. Plus, they're tasty—made with squid, shrimp and a unique palatable blend of vanilla, garlic and banana. Feed twice a day, and provide only as much as your fish will eat within three minutes.

Key Benefits
  • Sinking mini pellets formulated with a wide range of natural ingredients to meet the nutritional requirements of small tropical community fish.
  • Formulated with carotenoids to enhance the natural vibrant colors of fish.
  • A blend of insect and marine proteins supplies essential amino acids to help promote optimal growth.
  • Yeast, garlic and vitamins C and E help support the immune system.
  • Highly digestible recipe helps reduce waste and ammonia for cleaner, clearer water.

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.

    Sinks to fast

    By Johnnypistol on Jan 11, 2019

    Food descends to quickly. Some fish in the tank ate a few pellets on their way down, some fish mouthed a pellet and then rejected it. Most pellets found the gravel where the cat fish seemed to moderately enjoy them.

    Fish like it.

    By Mike on Sep 2, 2017

    Our fish gobble this up. It doesn't hang around long. The bottom feeders clean up anything that is left. Doesn't cloud up the water. So I guess if the fish eat it , it must be good.
