The right filtration system & the correct maintenance regime are two vital components to creating a health aquarium environment for your chosen fish. The third vital element is feeding. Fish have evolved in complex & varied eco-systems that provide them with a huge variety of food items. Some fish have very specific dietary requirements such as algae grazers & protein hungry carnivores. It is, therefore, very important to identify the food types your selection of fish require & give them a varied diet to ensure they bloom & remain in tip top condition.
The feeding of dry treat foods & frozen foods is very popular but most people do not appreciate that these food types need vitamin supplementation. This is because the process of their production & storage may mean that some vitamins are of low concentration, damaged or no longer present. This section also includes liquid vitamin compounds that will enhance the vitamin value of these feed types & are highly recommended.
