Is it fun to feed fish? Certainly. Aquarists often find that feeding fish and watching how they eat is one of the most interesting parts of their hobby. Gel Formula foods can make them even more fun to eat. You can make jelly-like soft gel food for your fish at home by following very simple steps.
The fish love jelly.
The fish go crazy for this food because it is so soft and moist. You can easily feed the fish in your aquarium what they need to eat because you can choose from food for omnivorous, carnivorous, or herbivorous fish.
Gel Formula for Omnivorous Fish has algae (8.5%), krill (3%), garlic, red pepper extract, and fruit.
More than 24% of the Gel Formula for Carnivorous Fish comes from invertebrates, such as shrimp, krill, calanus, squid, and insect larvae.
Most of the Gel Formula for Herbivorous Fish is algae. More specifically, there are 5 types of algae: spirulina (Spirulina platensis), chlorella (Chlorella vulgaris), Lithothamnium calcareum, and Kelp algae (Ascophyllum nodosum and Laminaria digitata).
Don’t forget that Gel Formula foods can be frozen. They can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days after they have been made fresh. But if you have fewer fish and can’t feed them all with one sachet, you should freeze the food. Prepare portions in advance that are the right size for your stock. Remember to always let the fish’s food thaw out before feeding it to them. Soft gel food is a great alternative to natural frozen food for fish because it doesn’t have the risk of bringing pathogens into the aquarium that natural food does.
How well soft gel fish food works
It’s amazing how well the product works. You can get the same amount of food from one 35 g sachet as you can from two 100 ml tins of Supervit Granules.
- Foods with Gel Formula can be frozen. So, you’ll always have safe, full food on hand.
- Do you want food that sinks or food that floats? The one that sticks to the glass or the one that smudges the stone? Gel Formula lets you have all of them.
- Foods with gel formula work very well. You can get the same amount of food from one sachet as you would from two 100 ml tins of granules.
Now, the tin with the three 35-gram packets also has a suction cup inside. When making food, like ice cubes, you can stick the end of the suction cup in the mass while it’s still liquid. After it hardens, the suction cup will already be in the piece of food. Now you just have to stick it to the glass and watch the fish eat.
