Hikari First Bites provide complete and balance nutrition for the all important development stage of your fry's life. Hikari First Bites promote proper feeding habits, long-term health, and superior disease resistance, allowing your fry to grow rapidly without fear of dietary deficiencies. Semi-floating to allow fry to eat at all levels of the aquarium.
For optimum results, feed daily as many times as possible, the amount your fish will completely consume within about a minute. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding. Up to 10 feedings per day may be necessary depending on number of fry and activity level. For mid-water and bottom feeders allow Hikari First Bites® to soak in a cup of aquarium water before feeding. This will cause the food to sink more rapidly allowing these fry better access.
Live bearing (ovoviviparous) fish (livebearers) can consume Hikari First Bites® right after birth. Start feeding Hikari First Bites® right before the yolk sack is fully consumed. Excess food can cause water quality problems which may result in heightened stress or serious illness. Feeding less food to be sure none is left after the feeding period is preferred to allow uneaten food to settle to the bottom of your aquarium.
