Ocean Nutrition, the maker of the famous “Formula Flake Foods”TM has just added a very interesting product to this already extensive range: the Spirulina Flakes. The main characteristic is the inclusion of Spirulina in the flakes. Spirulina is a nutritionally valuable blue-green algae known for its color, health and growth enhancing properties. Spirulina contains carotenoid pigments that will add to the brilliance of the color of the fish. Several studies indicate that fish fed with Spirulina in their diets show a higher survival rate and better disease resistance than the controls. Improvement of intestinal flora and stimulation of enzyme production that result in enhanced growth and less body fat. These benefits are useful for all fish, so Spirulina Flakes should not just be intended for plant-eaters only. To achieve this, Ocean Nutrition has made the Spirulina Flakes very attractive to all the fish by including highly attractive ingredients, such as fresh salmon, brine shrimp, krill and plants. This makes a very attractive food that all fish in the tank will love. Since the food has a high protein content, the flakes can be distributed on a regular basis as main food. Spirulina Flakes is not a supplemental food, it is a staple food for both freshwater and marine fish.
