Killifish are prized for their myriad color combinations and known for their discriminating tastes. That is why we’ve used copious amounts of fresh frozen Pacific krill and fresh frozen Canadian mysis to prepare our KILLIFEAST formula. We've increased the level of natural astaxanthin to support the full expression of colors in aquarium fish.
KILLIFEAST is available in two particle sizes. KILLIFEAST 1 (300-500 microns) is optimal for juveniles; KILLIFEAST 2 (500-1,000 microns) is sized for adults.
KILLIFEAST is also prepared using Cool Cooking Methodology, a low-temperature drying technology that results in better retention of vitamins and lipids, flavourants and amino acids. After drying, the particles are milled and sieved to optimal size for ingestion.
Like other diets in our AQUANIX line, KILLIFEAST not only has exceptional water stability, but it contains viable beneficial bacteria that facilitate the conversion of fish waste and uneaten food into harmless microbial biomass and carbon dioxide - so you'll see an improvement in water quality as well as in the overall health of your aquarium.
