This food is produced by a USA company who supplies zoos and large animal organizations with high quality animal feed.

As this is a high protein sinking gel food, it is especially good for young fancy goldfish (< 18 months) or young balloon fish who may otherwise suffer from digestive problems. Try the 5ML6 version which has a lower protein level for older fish.

Aquarists notes[edit]

This is an excellent food for constipated goldfish and my Mollys and Corys love it too. With a 50:50 mixture the food is a solid gel and is easily cut to size and sinks like a stone whilst remaining together for well over 10 minutes in the tank. On some forums I've heard it called the best man-made fish food on the planet. I can see why. As I live in the UK, it was expensive to buy it in from the USA. So I've taken a point off.
