Main food sticks for cichlids
For mainly carnivorous tilapia fish (cichlids).
Protein/fat ratio meets nutritional needs.
Does not cloud the water.
Readily eaten by other large species of fish as well.
Meat content consists exclusively of fish meat. With stabilised vitamin C.
For predatory fish species the protein/fat ratio shifts strongly towards a higher share of protein.
Due to the consumption of insect larvae and crustaceans the natural food for most tropical ornamental fish has a protein/fat ratio of about 4:1. Only fish predators get a higher protein content through the protein-rich fish meat they eat. Their food has a P/F ratio of approx. 12:1. Our competition mostly provides food with a P/F rate of about 2.5:1. This food contains too much fat! For fish in the aquarium, which are often less active than in their natural habitat, this leads to fatty degeneration and thus to a vulnerability to disease or death. JBL has adapted its food ranges to the species-appropriate P/F ratios.
