Aquanix Cool Flakes - Premium Fish Food Flakes

A higher standard for aquarium nutrition is one we're already meeting. Our COOL COOKING METHODOLOGY and binding technology results in a full-bodied, water-stable fish food flake diet that is packed with high quality ingredients sourced from around the world.

Conventional flaking processes operate at a contact temperatures of around 300°F, rendering some heat labile ingredients into the nutritional equivalent of cardboard. Conversely, our COOL COOKING METHODOLOGY gently dries select premium ingredients at an absurdly low temperature of 135°F, delivering a product with an entirely new texture, flavor and nutrient payload. Drying at lower temperature results in better retention of essential vitamins, lipids, flavourants and amino acids. Our process also allows us to use less fillers and instead concentrate on what fish really like.

The only "fresh" fish flake ive ever had. Was very impressed not only by the price but by the quality. Ive tried all fish flake - and breed and sell gupppies/endlers online : this is a well kept secret right here.
Very rich ( less is more ) and most important of all the fish, shrimp, snails, cat and dog all love it.
