Provide any newborn fish the exacting nutritional balance they require dring the earliest developmental stages of their life. Premium-select fish meal provides a protein and amino acid rich diet which promotes rapid growth free of dietary deformities or deficiencies. Non-dissipation of the necessary vitamins, nutrients and amino acids help your fry survive and flourish. An enhanced vitamin and mineral formulation which helps newborns develop excellent body form, superior disease resistance and proper organ development. A semi-floating food which promotes proper feeding habits while reducing waste.
For optimum results feed daily as often as possible the amount your fish will consume within 2 to 3 minutes. Care should be taken to avoid feeding larger quantities of food less often as it can cause a lack of nutrition. For best results feed up to four times daily an amount of food which can be consumed within a minute.
For mid-water and bottom feeders: Soak in a cup of aquarium water before feeding. This will cause the food to sink more rapidly providing these fry ready access to the nutrition.
For Live-Bearers (ovoviviparous): They can consume Hikari First Bites right after birth.
For Egg-Layers (oviparous): They utilize their yolk sack for nutrition right after birth. Start feeding Hikari First Bites right before their yolk sack is fully consumed.
We recommend Hikari Tropical First Bites as a daily diet for all types of newborn fish in both fresh and saltwater environments.
