Live Fish Food
With your pet fish it is super important to give them just the food they need and like hence live fish food for some fish. There are of course lots of different sorts of fish food like those for tropical fish flakes or the likes of Betta fish food pellets that enhance their color and many many more. We stop lots of nutritious fish foods so as naturally different fish need different foods.
For the likes of Goldfish food has higher proportions of vegs are required, a larger proportion of fat and protein for for tropical fish. The likes of Bettas are meat eating so not ideal fish to have in with other varieties! Should the variety have a mouth that is upturned that type is probably a fish that feeds on the surface so needs appropriate food for that. Should the fish have a down turned moth the opposite is true i.e. they tend to be bottom feeders and need food that goes to that area. We also have treats and frozen fish food and more.
Now back to live fish food - the advantage of the live food is that that it has lots of Nutrients and vitamins - more than say the standard dried fish food. Think about what your pet fish would be eating in the wild - there would be a large element of live fish food. Your fish will also be fascinated in the food because they move and there is a hunting aspect. There are many sorts (other that sorts like worms that you can get from your garden - not a food they would normally get though) like live mealworms, live waxworms, also insect larvae, feeder fish and maggotts. Bloodworms are a larvae that is full of protein - sixty percent) and you will find your fish growing very quickly using them.
A great live fish food is brine shrimp (technically called Artemia) and can be find live and dried. Naturally sometimes your fish will like them and sometimes not. The fish really love them and will eat them super quickly. Now look out for the likes of Brine Shrimp Eggs 50 Gramm which are popular and well reviewed. Some suggest water fleas (Daphnia) which are are a great healthy food and others are Grindal worms, Microworms , Vinegar Eels but are not always easy to find.
