Hikari, the pre-eminent aquarium specialty fish food brand has more than 130 years experience in producing premium aquatic diets.
Hikari First Bites is a uniquely balanced and highly palatable, semi-buoyant daily diet for all types of newborn fish in both fresh and saltwater environments. The uniquely balanced formula provides any newborn fish with the exacting nutritional balance they require during the earliest developmental stages of their lives. The ingredients include premium-selected fish meal to provide a superior protein source rich in amino acids. Being semi-floating, fry at all levels of the aquarium have ready to feed. The easily digested formula helps reduce waste output thereby helping to maintain water quality.
Prior to feeding mid water and bottom feeders, Hikari First Bites should be soaked in a cup of aquarium water for a few minutes. This will enable the pellets to sink more quickly.
For optimum results feed daily and as often as possible. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding. Only use the amount your fish will completely consume within two to three minutes. Avoid feeding larger quantities of food less often as this can cause a lack of necessary nutrition and cause water quality issues.
Remember that live-bearers (ovoviviparous) can consume Hikari First Bites right after birth.
However, egg-layers (oviparous) utilise their yolk sack for nutrition right after birth. Hikari First Bites should be fed to egg-layers just before their yolk sack has been fully consumed.
