Powdered feed for rearing the offspring of herbivorous ornamental fish
Rearing feed for the offspring of herbivorous ornamental fish. Naturefood Premium Plant Starter is a finely powdered feed based on vegetable ingredients also containing a proportion of special feed enriched in proteins and fats.
This provides the young fish with a plant-based feed that also enhances their growth. The food is highly digestible and covers their elevated requirements for protein during the growth phase.
The high bioavailability reduces feces and therefore, water pollution, which is especially important in rearing tanks for young fish.
Naturefood Plant Starter floats at the water surface for a long time, where the young fish can feed. To reach all the fish in the tank, the feed should be added directly to the current right at the filter outlet, making sure that the feed particles get to all parts of the aquarium bit by bit.
After feeding, the bellies of your young fish should be relatively flat, not round and plump.
In nature, most fish spend practically all day eating, therefore we highly recommend feeding rather small amounts, but several times a day.
As soon as the young fish have reached around 1 cm in length, you can switch them over to Premium Plant S or Premium Cichlid Plant S, always depending on which species of fish you are raising.
"Herbivorous", as a rule, means that these ornamental fish feed on algae. However, in nature, innumerous small invertebrates inhabit the algal growth on rocks, driftwood and plants, which are also eaten by the fish. For this reason, herbivorous aquarium fish also need a proportion of protein-rich animal-based feed in their diet.
