With the wide variety of commercial foods
available, it is sometimes difficult to determine
which type of food to feed your fish. When
choosing a food, the first thing you need to know
is what type of diet is natural to your fish. All
fish fit into one of three categories:
Herbivore - plant eater
Carnivore - meat eater
Omnivore - consumer of both plants and
meaty foods... the vast majority of aquarium
fish fit into this category
Many of the staple diets do a very good job of providing a broad range of essential nutrients required for good health. But, we believe that variety in the diet is important to good nutrition and the well-being of your fish. Offering supplementary foods, in addition to the "staple" diet, ensures better nutrition and enriches the diet of your fish with more tastes and textures.
