Is it true that some cichlids should not be fed ‘bloodworm’?
Yes, this is correct. All South American cichlids including dwarf cichlids will relish on the idea of feeding on bloodworm, so for these guys it’s safe to use. Cichlids from the great African Lakes on the other hand are very inefficient in digesting hemoglobin. Bloodworm is full of hemoglobin which give the worm its specific color The hemoglobin appears to irritate the fish’s gut and a condition known as ‘Malawi’ bloat may occur. In general, these fish thrive on minuscule food particle that they find in the ‘awfuch’ (plankton and inverts found in the algae growing on the rocks). But you should try feeding your African cichlids Cyclops or you will see the feeding response for yourself.
Can frozen food go straight in the tank?
Yes it can. Our products are well rinsed prior to be flash-frozen. Once the frozen animal hits the water it will defrost very quickly and will spread evenly in the tank.
Why should I feed my fish with frozen feeds?
There are several reasons why we recommend to use our frozen feeds. The flash-freezing process avoid crystals forming in the prey so the animal does not get damaged by the freezing process. What you get is the prey in its natural form. One thing is for sure, frozen food is the next best thing compared to live food. The freezing process ensures that most of the goodness in the food is preserved. Our range and packaging offers great versatility and variety.
