Fish Food Brands

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I currently use Spectrum (Tetra A), but it is getting (well is) pricey

($550 a go for 4 2.27 kg buckets every few months) (Grow, 1 mm, 3mm and 6 mm)

are their other brands that are the same type of pellet which are cheaper and as good if not better

chance for sponsors to show case what they have

thanks in advance

Yea New Era is awesome. Definitely top shelf stuff.

A bit of a strange alternative, is some of the real higher end koi foods.

Yea sounds weird right but have a look at a few here

Age of Aquariums - Koi Food

look at the most expensive ones

you get what you pay for.

but at least in this case you get 5kg worth!

medium pellets are pretty big though

but then you are buying 3mm and 6mm

could be worth a try

I am experimenting with them myself

I think people get a little carried away with food trying to feed the food with the best ingredients and thinking there doing the best for there fish high protein and the likes.

If you think about a person eating high protein and the best stuff all the time we would get pretty fat quick without a little exercise.

The stuff that gets pumped into a tank fish the hardly moves in its environment where as in the wild rivers they would be working hard against currents predators and such,now I've been guilty myself of over feeding.

Most fish are supposed to have a knife shape a lot I have seen are round and are being killed with kindness and expensive foods are to blame to some degree so for this summer I'm going to try natural stuff like peas,beef heart,prawns cherry shrimp. Should only cost $20 for 3months,so in three months I'll update.

The ingredients are EVERYTHING as far as my fish feeding philosophy goes lol

earthworms are awesome fish food. So is duckweed, spirulina, peas, prawns, brineshrimp........ but it comes at the cost of time, effort and extra cleaning.

If you have the time...... then awesome.

The thing about the best modern foods is that they are complete, concentrated and highly digestible.

So you feed less, they poop less and you clean less.

its just easy.

I can feed the entire fish room spectrum 1mm in 2minutes before work.

BUT if I do all the seperate foods...... it takes me 30min.

I would prefer to take the 30min

but most mornings I just dont have the time to.

Are you sure is $550 for 2.27kg? It would be between $130-$180 max
