Tropical Fish Food
Making sure the feed of your tropical fish is the correct type is critical to maintaining good health. There is a vast range available of tropical fish food, which includes the likes of flaked, granular and pellet food. Other types include wafer and tablet foods aimed at bottom feeding fish together with other options such as sticks and floating pellets.
Flaked fish food is one of the most popular foods available, it’s perfect for small to medium fish and widely available from most reputable manufacturers. As well as general flake products, you can also buy a colour-enhancing flake that helps to enhance the natural colours of fish.
Granular and micro pellet foods are becoming popular with more produced each year. They offer an alternative to flake to vary the diet and many are ideal for mid water and bottom feeding fish as they sink through the water. Wafer and tablet type products are aimed at bottom feeding fish as they drop to the bottom of the tank quickly and are too large for smaller species to swallow giving the bottom feeders a chance to feed. Sticks and floating pellets are larger food items and will remain in the tank longer than finer flakes giving larger fish an opportunity to feed comfortably.
