Newly hatched nauplii from these eggs provide one of nature's finest, nutritious foods for aquarium fishes, corals and invertebrates. Newly hatched nauplii are a good source of protein, fatty acids and color-enhancing pigments.
There are a variety of quality prepared foods currently available that satisfy the nutritional needs of both fish and invertebrates. However, supplementing the diet with live food can provide additional nutritional benefits.
With the wide variety of commercial foods
available, it is sometimes difficult to determine
which type of food to feed your fish. When
choosing a food, the first thing you need to know
is what type of diet is natural to your fish.
Fish need protein, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Unfortunately few foods contain all or enough of these essential nutrients. Therefore, the best way to ensure all their nutritional prerequisites are met is to give them a varied diet.
Good nutrition is a must for healthy aquarium inhabitants and a healthy ecosystem. Every year, thousands of fish become diseased or die because of malnutrition. Poor nutrition affects the fish's immune system, making them more susceptible to disease.
