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.

Do I need to vary my fish’s diet?

Put it this way… Would you like to eat mash potatoes every day? In principle our flakes and pellets are manufactured to meet all your fish’s dietary requirements. Your fish will live perfectly happy if fed exclusively on our flake range. By combining frozen formulas feeds and the appropriate flakes or pellets, you will bring a little more excitement in your fish’s life. For instance, its well known in the hobby that daphnia (frozen) can trigger breeding responses. Variation in a fish’s diet is not only changing flakes and frozen food but also the way of presenting food. Tools such as our grid feeder for example encourage fish to feed in a ‘natural way’.
