There are a few things that you need to consider when you are buying fish food. Without this knowledge, you might be feeding the wrong food to your fish and this can cause health- problems soon. We will go straight to the heart of these things that you need to know.
First, you need to know what fish you will keep in your tanks. Different fish breeds require different kinds of nutrition. If you are keeping predator fish, then you should have a stock of other small fish that will serve as food. However, not all fish might prove to be beneficial to your predator fish. Next, select what form the food should be in. you can buy flake food, pellet food, and other things. Pellets are dried and are usually used for large fish. Pellets may either float or sink. Flakes do not have moisture because they are baked. This kind of food is commonly used for invertebrates.
Lastly, never forget to check the expiry date of the fish food that you are going to buy. Without checking this, you might come across and expired product and you will soon realize that your fish are getting sick (Coeunt). Worse, they can be poisoned. The ingredients are also very important because this is how you will know if the supplements are complete for your fish. If in doubt, check out with an expert and make your own research. There are lots of materials in the Internet that will guide you on what nutrients fish needs.
