Description

Feed your bottom fish a delicious, nutrient-rich food that produces less ammonia for cleaner, clearer water with API Bottom Feeder Optimal Protein Sinking Shrimp Pellets. These pellets produce up to 30% less ammonia than leading competitor foods because they are made with highly palatable shrimp and nutritionally enhanced protein for maximum digestion. The more nutrients your fish digests, the less waste and ammonia. It is a complete and balanced diet for all bottom-feeding fish including Catfish, Plecostomus and Loaches. Feed twice a day, and provide only as much as your fish will consume within 30 minutes.

Key Benefits
  • Complete and balanced diet for all bottom-feeding fish in pellet form.
  • Optimal protein for healthy growth and a healthy environment.
  • Produces 30% less ammonia than leading competitor foods.
  • Contains shrimp for a highly-palatable, nutrient-rich food.
  • Supplemented with seaweed and squid to promote healthy growth.
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.

    my cory catfish prefer these

    By on

    Side-by-side vs. other similar sinking foods, my 6 Corydoras (aeneus species) prefer these API pellets. The pellets stay in place better than some brands, which appears to make them easier to eat than certain disk-shaped ones. My fish are healthy and happy and growing.

    My coreys love this food

    By on

    My coreys love this food. I have one older guy and I thought he was over-the-hill. After changing to this food, he is back to his old antics and acting crazy zipping around the tank. If fish activity is any measure, this is an absolutely great pellet for bottom dwellers.

    I have 6 Cory catfish that I feed about 20 pellets of this food to daily. They go right for these pellets and are very healthy.
