Did you know?

Vegetarian cichlids are very inefficient in digesting the haemoglobin.

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.

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’.
