Scientifically formulated to provide newborn fish the exacting nutritional balance they require during the earliest developmental stages of their lives. High in superior protein sources offering newborns ideal nutrient sources, First Bites® will help your newborns develop excellent body form, exacting coloration and proper organ development. Give your fry their best chance at a long and health-filled life.
For optimum results, feed daily as many times as possible, the amount your fish will completely consume within about a minute. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding. Up to 10 feedings per day may be necessary depending on number of fry and activity level. For mid-water and bottom feeders allow Hikari First Bites® to soak in a cup of aquarium water before feeding. This will cause the food to sink more rapidly allowing these fry better access.
Livebearers (ovoviviparous) can consume Hikari First Bites® right after birth. Start feeding Hikari First Bites® right before the yolk sack is fully consumed. Excess food can cause water quality problems which may result in heightened stress or serious illness. Feeding less food to be sure none is left after the feeding period is preferred to allowing uneaten food to settle to the bottom of your aquarium.
For additional feeding suggestions for your fry once they surpass Hikari First Bites®, ask your aquatic retailer about other specialized diets from Hikari® for all types of freshwater, marine, and pond pets too, from the leader in nutrition for aquatic pets!
